The 15th annual Holmes County Rails-to-Trails Benefit Auction will be held on Saturday, June 8 at the Harvest Ridge, 8880 state Route 39, Millersburg. This will be the first year the auction will be held at Harvest Ridge, and all events will be held at the Harvest Ridge campus including the Road Apple Run.

“We are excited to offer the benefit auction at Harvest Ridge this year,” said Jen Halverson, director of the Holmes County Rails-to-Trails Coalition. “The facility will remove the weather from possibly impacting our day. We will have the ability to hold all events, except for the race, indoors in a cool, comfortable environment. Harvest Ridge obviously has plenty of vehicle parking, but we have also been able to designate areas for hitching horses and parking buggies and bikes. We have recently opened our new trail bridge across the Killbuck Creek that will allow Trail traffic to easily access state Route 39 and reduce the distance on it to just over a half-mile. For those that would prefer to not travel on state Route 39, we have partnered with Pomerene Hospital to offer shuttle service from the Millersburg Depot to Harvest Ridge.”

For those using the Holmes County Trail to attend the auction, there will be a couple different ways to arrive. Those wishing to go the entire way to Harvest Ridge via bike or buggy may use the newly constructed bridge across the Killbuck Creek to the Old Fairgrounds.

A path will be designated with signage through the Old Fairgrounds to County Road 349, which will lead to state Route 39. Then Harvest Ridge is only 0.6 of mile on state Route 39.

The shuttle service will begin at 7 a.m. The auction will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will include locally made furniture, quilts, plants, lawn mowers, tools, a swing set and buggies. At 12:30 p.m. a 16-by-24-foot log cabin will be sold.

The day’s events also will include the Road Apples on the Ridge 2-mile race, breakfast, a bake sale, a silent auction, barbecue chicken, homemade ice cream and a pony raffle.
