The smoke is billowing on steamer hill this weekend. The big Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion is underway in Rollag. Today thousands arrived to watch the big steam engines work. Besides the parade of tractors at 10 and 2, many watched many of the demonstrations including the steam powered saw mill. Volunteers helped cut logs into lumber which gets put to use right on the grounds of Steamer Hill.

Yancy Wifall – WMSTR Volunteer: “Most of the kids they do not know what is going on where it comes from but we are doing rough cut right now and in the afternoon will plane boards to dimensional size.”

The Steam Thresher's Reunion runs through Monday. Doors open at 6am every morning.
