Friday morning, July 10
We arrived at Mount Hope Auction just before 10 AM.
Cerwin helped Jason Nussbaum and a volunteer set up a canopy where the grill was going to be placed.
My job was to photograph the activities.
That sounds like tough duty.
All Events Rental set up tables and chairs.
Cerwin and Gary Nussbaum.
Gary and Pearl and their son Jason and his wife, Shannon, oversee the rally activities – with help from many volunteers.
Reuben Miller and his dad, Lester, brought the stage.
The children’s activities were at one end of the large auction building.
The auction was in the middle – between the children’s activities and the eating area.
Toward evening we went to Kidron where the trucks were gathering for the parade.
I understand that there were 208 trucks – a record number for them.

A police sheriff was the ‘pace car” for the parade of truck which began at 7 PM.
The chapel looked good in front of the trucks.
This is just a sampling of my pictures.

After the last truck went by, we followed it for a bit and got to seem some of the many observers.
Then we took a back road to see if we could get ahead of the parade as it arrived at Mount Hope Auction.
As we crossed a back road, we met the parade – so took another back road to get ahead of it.
The spot we wanted was still available, and we waited about fifteen minutes before the trucks arrived.
We got Gary’s attention.
The trucks looked pretty in the dusk and later in the dark.
The next time we attend this event I want to take pictures as the trucks arrive at Mount Hope Auction.
The Hart Brothers were already picking and singing when we arrived.
Jason was serving food and drink…
…as him mom, Pearl, put hot dogs and pulled pork in buns.
Enjoying food and music.
Homemade ice cream was a favorite – whether in dishes or root beer floats.
This was my evening meal.
Gary closed the evening and invited everyone to come back in the morning for a pancake breakfast.
