As it has always done in the past, Olde Tyme Days provided a day of fun and entertainment reminiscent of yesteryear. This year saw a record number of people turn out  to enjoy the event and I thought Batavian readers might enjoy these photos.

Always a high point at Olde Tyme Days is the town meeting - here being called to order.

Who and what is the subject of this years meeting? Why its none other than Cornelius!

The doc and the marshall listen as Cornelius is accused.

The tension builds as the charges are brought....

The marshall prepares to confront Cornelius...

as local townfolk add a bit of fuel to the fire.

Others, however, find the proceedings amusing!

Though Cornelius "skates" as always, a sense of justice - or humor - prevails.

None other than Goliath.....

under the watchful eyes of this fellow, who also managed to keep an eye on a couple of roving explorers....those are his grandsons in photo below.

it was a great day at West Jackson Corners, with a good time had by all and by days end,

most were a bit spent.

Care to spend a few hours in a simpler, less complicated era? If so, then it might be worth the twenty minute ride to West Jackson Corners this Sunday, July 18th. Olde Tyme Days festivities will begin at approximately 11 a.m. right across the road from East Shelby Community Bible Church. There will be plenty of food and refreshments on hand, none costing more than a penny! Hot dogs, homemade pies (rhubarb, cherry, blueberry, apple, peach, blackberry etc.) homemade ice cream, homemade bread and more will be available.

Here the ladies are serving up homemade bread and other snacks. Note the open hearth in the background.

There will be horse-drawn wagon rides through the countryside and pony rides for the kids.

Lots of singing....

and laughter-inducing entertainment...   is the order of the day.  If you've got a free hour or two come Sunday, come on out to Olde Tyme Days where the food is a penny and the activities are free! Located on East Shelby Rd. two miles north of Swallow Hollow Trail.
