Corwin Tractor Show 2024

Hey Friends,

This is Odie checking for this Saturday. I hope you all had a wonderful week. I have had a fantastic week. This week, I have been soaking up some Morgan family time. I will share more on that later.

Corwin, Ohio, is a small community close to where I live. Many members of our extended family have lived there throughout the years. My great-great-grandpa JP Lamb helped start the Corwin Pentecostal Church. He is credited with bringing Pentecost to our area.

I heard Papaw Eugene Boggs tell a story last Saturday that I do not remember hearing before. When Papaw was four years old, his parents came to Ohio looking for work. Grandma and Grandpa Boggs were in a single-cab truck with three children and another one on the way.

They came over the hill to see Corwin, Ohio. Grandma looked around and said this looks like a good place to live and raise a family. They asked around and found a house to rent. The community people helped them gather furniture. They helped them get started in Ohio.

My parents spent a lot of time in Corwin during their childhood. Dad's parents still live a mile over the hill from Corwin. They moved to their current house when Dad was five.

Corwin will always hold a special place in our hearts. It is just a spot on the map for the majority of people, but it has always been part of my life. 

Corwin Tractor Show 2024

Last Saturday was the 24th annual Corwin Tractor Parade. I have only attended a few of them over the years. I get to see family and friends along the way. 

The weather last week was perfect. The sun was out, and the temperature was in the 70s. Spending time with my Mamaw and Papaw was extremely special to me.

Here is the fire truck preparing the way for the parade.

Dave and Sue Lamb joined us for the parade. We enjoyed visiting with them.

Some crowd shots.

My cousin Gary Cofffman and his grandson Hunter started up the lineup.

There were over 40 tractors in the parade. 

It was neat to see all of them! 

I got pictures of most of the tractors as they came by our viewing spot.

The tractors were of all shapes and sizes.

We waved and cheered on many family members and friends.

After the parade, a local businessman provided food. They also had a tractor pull for the kids, but we did not stick around for that part of the day.

Mamaw had a craving for Chinese food. We ended our festivities with a visit to China Cottage. It was a delicious meal and hit the spot!

Overall, the whole day was so good. I am glad I could attend the Tractor Parade with my grandparents this year! It will be a treasured memory for a long time!

Thanks for stopping by to visit with me! See you next time.
