Loading Up at the Miller's Mills Old Fashioned Ice Harvest, originally uploaded by ElementaryTechTeacher.
Out of the 186 pictures I took today I chose this one for my POD simply because it shows a good view of much of the work involved in the ice harvest. The ice harvest is truly a community event for the village of Miller's Mills. You see community members everywhere-parking the cars, running the food lines at the Grange hall and Baptist Church, selling 50/50 tickets and then all the people involved in actually harvesting the ice and getting it stored away. It was a fun afternoon watching the action, taking the pictures and getting some fresh air. In July the community has another event-The Sundae Run. It's a 5K race with an ice cream social at the end! Due to health regulations they can no longer use the ice from the harvest but they still hold the event anyway. Our son ran the race once with a broken arm. He won a door prize and came home with a huge bag of oranges. The past several years we always seem to be on vacation during the race and I have a feeling this summer will be no different. It's great to see communities coming together for special events like these.
