When Vernie Selanders was doing the chicken it was the best. I still remember the smell if the chicken cooking from the 50's to the 80's. Their vinegar mixture basting was great.

Going every year to the Corn Show was a time to see friends and having fun. The chicken was out of this world. Families came together.Some of my best memories of Ashley.

Loved going to the Corn Show as a kid. Funny to hear the stories from my Dad about some of the shenanigans that took place.

Grandpa Don!!!

I use to help with the cooking I still have the original recipe for the vinegar mixture,that my grandfather Don Jones wrote down

Always great time to see friends great food be there or be square

Three boxes containing gold medals sit at the base of the pots of three young oak trees in this publicity photo of track star Jesse Owens, who is wearing the traditional laurel crown of an Olympic winner.

But the trees were not just props for a photo opp. They were given to each gold medal winner by the German Olympic Committee.

The US team took home 24 of the saplings. Owens would win gold four times (this photo was taken before he won his fourth gold medal).

The records on the locations of each Olympic tree are very few and so mostly unknown. According to a recent NPR story, the association with Hitler may have prompted many athletes to get rid of the saplings.

But like Owens’s legacy, one of these oak trees continues to grow and flourish. It stands outside James Ford Rhodes High School in Cleveland, Ohio, where Owens trained.
