Hot times in Goessel



Temperatures in the three-digit range didn?t keep fans of antique steam engines and classic tractors from the Goessel Country Threshing Days this weekend. Young and old alike lined Goessel?s Main Street to watch the annual parade Saturday morning. A variety of the old-time tractors, such as those in the top photo, were the featured attraction, but the Goessel High band emergency vehicles, classic cars, horses and lots of candy held onlookers? attention as the mercury climbed. Drawing a good response was Captain Goessel (bottom photo), embodied this year by Randolph Schmidt, one of the founders of the Threshing Days tradition as well as the Mennonite Heritage Museum.
