Live auction to highlight 39th Harvest Fest at Fairhaven Community

UPPER SANDUSKY [Aug. 29, 2019] – Fairhaven Community’s Volunteer Service Group (VSG) will host the 39th annual Harvest Fest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 26 at Fairhaven.

For the first time, this year’s Harvest Fest will include a live auction and a Celebrate Fairhaven presentation.

For decades, farmers and residents have flocked to the popular Harvest Fest to participate in the fun and take home their share of Wyandot County’s bountiful crop harvest. The event dates to the days when farmers generously shared the fruits of their labors with Fairhaven residents. This year’s event will include historic videos from the 1940s that show what life was like at Fairhaven.

The public is invited to attend the event, which will include a live auction (10:30-11:30 a.m.), a bake sale (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), a raffle (closes at 12:30 p.m.) and free entertainment (1-1:30 p.m.). Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a donation, and tours will also be available.

The VSG consists of members of northwest Ohio churches and individual volunteers who regularly give their time at Fairhaven. Among their many volunteer activities, VSG members run Fairhaven’s gift shop. In total, volunteers gave more than 7,500 hours of service to Fairhaven in 2018.
