EDGERTON — The Rock River Thresheree reunion will feature a variety of stories about antique equipment, but perhaps none more interesting than two engines that the Fairbanks-Morse Company manufactured in 1935.
The thresheree will be held Friday through Monday, Sept. 1 through Sept. 4, at Thresherman’s Park south of Edgerton.
It will feature two CV-6 gasoline engines that were aboard the Navy’s USS Enterprise during World War II. Both engines were transported from New York in time for the 61st annual celebration.
It’s good to be the queen. It's good to be the king, too, as Jack Elliott and Brooke Trustem discovered in May when they were crowned king and queen of the 2017 Rock County 4-H Fair.
“Being fair royalty and king is a special award because it recognizes all of the efforts I have put into 4-H over these past 12 years,” Elliott, a member of River Valley 4-H, said in an email.
Elliott, 18, won his first fair ribbons at age 8 during his first year in the Rock County 4-H Fair horse and pony show. He got a little help from Mo, an Arabian, and Sassy, a Welsh pony.
JANESVILLE MESSENGER--Part of the fun at the fair is watching all of the animals being judged; each rabbit and chicken held by a hopeful youngster, each bovine, equine, ovine, caprine and porcine maneuvered by their handler in the show ring. You know what a rabbit and chicken are, but do you know a bovine refers to cattle, equine to horses and ponies, ovine to sheep, caprine to goats and porcine to pigs?
Emily Harris, a fourth generation 4-H member, recalls her days in the show ring with her sheep at the Boone County, Illinois, and Rock County, Wisconsin, fairs.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Russ Hays has been busy. As co-chair of the Cars Time Forgot car show, he’s lined up vendors, recruited volunteers, answered innumerable questions from potential visitors and exhibitors and given interviews — heck, he even built the show trophy.
He’ll see all his work come to fruition on Sunday, July 9, 2017 when more than 1,000 show cars, trucks, motorcycles and special interest vehicles are expected to cover the grounds of Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan. This is the sixth year the show has been at the resort after outgrowing its original location in downtown Delavan.
