The Jefferson County Historical Society's third annual Threshing Bee is this Saturday, Aug. 10, from 2-5 p.m., at the Homestead area at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. Everyone is invited to attend.

This year, the event will be co-sponsored by the Antique Engine and Tractor Club, Branch 248, which will have a large display of running equipment for guests to see.

Those in attendance can learn the entire process of threshing wheat, grinding it into flour and using old time equipment to make the leftover straw into bales.

There will be games, food and family fun. A picnic dinner, including fried chicken, salads and beans, will be available for $25 per family, or $10 for an individual. For dessert, homemade ice cream and Dutch-oven cherry cobbler will be available.
