Old Tyme Days slated for Sunday at West Jackson Corners
Submitted by JIM NIGRO on July 17, 2009 - 3:44pm
West Jackson Corners is name-sake of the same geographical locale as it was once known – say back around the turn of the last century. West Jackson Corners village is located directly across the road from East Shelby Community Bible Church, and this Sunday, July 19th – the Annual Old Tyme Days – the population of the village will once again flourish as visitors come to get a look at life in a bygone era.
Old Tyme Days, an annual event sponsored by Community Bible Church, always draws a good crowd. And why not, given the opportunity to step back in time, to the days when hot dogs and home-made pie cost a penny? When ice cream and lemonade were home-made and so was the bread. I almost forgot to mention the home-made jam, goats-milk fudge and home-made cheese.
Not only can you eat for a penny – and eat well – there will be entertainment in the form of the West Jackson Players, the West Jackson Band of Renown and a barber shop quartet. Horse-drawn rides will be offered as well as weaving and spinning demonstrations, blacksmith and tinsmith shops and much more including old fashioned games and activities.
The family-oriented event lasts all day, beginning with an old fashioned worship service at East Shelby Community Bible Church at 10 a.m. West Jackson Corners is located seven miles southeast of Medina on the East Shelby Road.
