                                        SHELDON OLD SETTLERS PICNIC
                                          Submitted by Darlene Sheridan

Early in the year 1904, John Phipps, pioneer resident of the Sheldon Community, saw a need to generate more interest
in the community. He suggested a picnic for the area and offered to donate a beef for a bar-b-que. His idea was greatly
accepted. G.T. Davis and T.D. McCutsheon joined Mr. Phipps and each donated a beef. They discussed a time and
decided the last weekend in August. Their plans were announced for the Sheldon Community Picnic. A very large
crowd gathered with the ladies of the community brining baskets of food to go with the bar-b-que. The event was such
a success; a group was selected to plan for the second picnic.
The event grew popular and became known as the Sheldon Old Settlers’ Picnic. The picnic extended to a two-day
event, then in later years, three days. The idea was suggested for farmer to display agricultural products involving
mules, cattle, and chickens. The picnic drew large crowds of observers to the picnic in the park. Later the community
building was built and carnivals were secured to afford entertainment for the young people. Through the years other
attractions, such as mule shows, horse and pony pulling contests, horseshoe pitching, machine displays, were added.
Shortly before the 50th annual picnic, the committee added the feature to have a Picnic Queen and attendants, band
concerts, contests for children, and a parade on the last day of the picnic.
When carnivals became a part of the picnic, they always had food stands, but later they wished to have others maintain
the food so the churches took turns in serving. Later the Sheldon American Legion and Auxiliary took over
management of the picnic and also the food stand.
During the depression it was necessary to limit the picnic to one day due to limited help. In the late forties the area had
so much rain, the carnival was required to set up on Main Street because the grounds in the park was too wet.
A nominating committee selected the Legion and Auxiliary served as officers for several years, then again people who
were willing to accept the responsibility and the last evening of the picnic, the new officers President, Vice-President,
Secretary, and Treasurer were selected.
In the past few years many other activities were added including dances, tractor pulling contests, ugly truck contests,
and most recently antique car show and many more displays were added in the community building arts and crafts, 4-H
display, quilt and sewing display, and flower contests. Also Grand Marshall selected to reign each year.
In the past years the liability insurance became so high that carnivals were required to secure that it became difficult to
always find a carnival. A special thank you to officers and committees for their work to the centennial picnic so special.
