The students will be able to come back in July and see the ice they harvested today put to use.

We're going back to the way things were done 100 years ago.

Ice harvesting was a huge thing in Waseca until the 1940s. The Johnson family harvested ice for 50 years until the late 1940s.

The focus of the event is education and fun.

We are real lucky to have a huge number of resources in this area to pull this event off.

But they also provided ice for people who still had ice boxes.
