The Ingelow picnic was always the event of the summer. It was held for many years on the Booth farm in a lovely setting - a level meadow surrounded by trees. The tables were set under the trees and fairly groaned with good food. Games and races were held in the afternoon and evening, and much visiting was done. People came long distances by horse and buggy and later cars. The last picnic I can remember was held in 1941.
