42nd Annual Molasses Festival
At Arnoldsburg's West Fork Park

Don Mace of Cottageville and Alan Ball and Ron Shaffer of Frozen Camp are shown with some of the sugar cane raised for processing at the Molasses Festival.

The making of sweet molasses always starts with the "squeezin's" going in one end of the pan and, after careful boiling and skimming, coming out the other end as the product we all love to pour on pancakes and biscuits. Pictured above are, left to right, Dip Mace, Kenny Arnold and Vier Hall.

Fireman Carl Marks shows Levi Morris the workings of a fire truck.
