I loved hearing the stories of past days, it is sad that the older generation is leaving us. It's important to pass these stories down to the next generation. The bible says, "One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts." -Psalm 145:4 We are to pass down our heritage to one another, the "Dacusville Heritage Association" is doing just that.
Labor Day Weekend around Dacusville consist of steam engines, hayrides, antique tractors, cars, and farm equipment, classic cars, trucks, and jeeps, arts and crafts....beans and cornbread; no chicken feet.
Tom Turner said that "Dacusville Farm Days" had been an event that has been happening in our community faithfully for 25-30 years. It first started with the Dacusville Lion's Club, they put this event on for 7-10 years and then Mr. Robinson and his family took it over. "For many years Jim Robinson and his family had operated the Dacusville Farm Days celebration on Labor Day Weekend. But last year Jim's oldest son Randy died after an unexpected heart attack, and Jim found that he had lost some of the joy he had experienced. "We loved the show and enjoyed the family and our friends pulling together to make something special happen. But with Randy no longer with us, it did not seem right to continue. We wanted to let the show die with Randy." - Ben Robinson "Annual Dacusville Farm Show Set For Labor Day Weekend", Pickens County Courier, www.yourpickenscounty.com.

The "Dacusville Heritage Association" wants to invite you to come and be apart of them. The fee is $20 per year to become a member. The money collected so far has went to promote the "Dacusville Farm Show", it has paid for insurance, banners, advertisements, and to build the ticket booth. There are currently 85 members, and they are offering a "special deal" if you sign up now you pay the $20 dollars and it will cover the rest of this year, plus next year.
Tom said, that they tried to keep as many of the great things that you are accustomed to seeing, and experiencing during the past years when it was "Dacusville Farm Days". Nine Forks Baptist Church will continue their "Old Timey Farm Day" service with a tractor parade from their church to the "Dacusville Farm Show". You will see antiques, go on hayrides, many food vendors, crafts, a kid zone....tractors, tractors, and more tractors. There will be dealers set up selling tractor parts.
