The annual Midwest Old Threshers Reunion gets underway today (Wednesday) with a parade in Mount Pleasant. The reunion features steam-driven machines that used to be used for harvest, along with horse-draw buggies and trains. Reunion administrator Lennis Moore says they’re trying to get younger people to the event, and when he says “younger” he means people who’re 40 to 50 years old.He says its people who don’t remember the harvesting days of the 1920’s or the Depression days of the 1930’s, but do remember the late 40’s, 50’s and early 60’s. Moore says this brings a whole new generation to the reunion. Over 60-thousand people are expected to attend the event that runs through the Labor Day weekend.
