Saturday, September 10th
Museum
The Museum Committee has been hard at work to bring more Cleghorn history for residents and others to learn while exploring the museum. With the addition of glass-top display cases, memorabilia will be available for viewing.

Committee member Bill Theil is writing a book that he hopes to have ready for sale by the Harvest Fest. It involves Pleasant Valley over the period from 1859-1916 and its prehistory, government, settlement process, agricultural history, rural life and a chapter with miscellaneous topics, such as the railroad. It is not a biographical history but a social history. It is a story of a rural community and the people who lived day to day lives.

Another project that the committee has begun is making a documentary video on the closing of Cleghorn Elementary School, its demolition, the creation of the Cleghorn School Park, the Cleghorn Harvest Fest and its continuing growth.

Parade
Cleghorn’s old-fashioned ode to the the end of summer is a small parade by Eau Claire’s standards — just the one-third mile length of downtown Cleghorn. It doesn't have some standard parade scenes like marching bands or politicians, but it is packed with what makes up the small rural community of Cleghorn.

Each year is a bit different, but routinely you’ll see kids on horseback, local residents in classic cars, military vehicles, tractors, and schoolchildren. Kicking it off every year are several Township Fire Department fire engines and the Pleasant Valley firefighters who protect the Cleghorn area.

To end the parade is the Ol’ Timers Parade — a comical look into the past. One never knows what folks will come up with, but it sure does leave everyone with a smile on their face and story to tell.

The parade kicks off at 12:30 on the Saturday of the Cleghorn Harvest Fest weekend. Arrive early to get your spot picked out and don’t forget to bring a bag for all the candy!
