  • An undated aerial photo of White Oak Dam, north of Manheim. D. Yvonne Kreider, who lived near the
dam, had this to say: “In the winter, the water at the dam would freeze. If it froze when the wind was
calm, the ice would be smooth and skating would be easy. If it was windy, the ice would be rippled
and skating would be rough. Jay Nissley would build a huge bonfire on the ice. The skaters would
hold hands, making a circle around the fire and skate round and round. On windy days, the big guys
would take a bed sheet, tie the ends to long poles, skate to one end of the frozen water, open the
poles and let the wind ‘sail’ them to the other end. When the sun cast its last rays on the ice and
then disappeared, more wood was put on the fire. A window was opened at the mill and a floodlight
turned on and hot food and drinks were served.”
