COSHOCTON – The annual pie and candy auction at the Coshocton County Fair certainly brings out those that tend to have a sweet tooth. The stack of boxes piled around Greg and Heather Cox of Cox Lawn & Vegetation Service was evidence indeed that they are among those that enjoy the sweet treats.

Greg said, “It’s fun – it’s a good time. We like to come to the auction and support it. As one example, Cox bought the six remaining plates of peanut butter fudge and gave it away. Others soon followed suit and everyone enjoyed laughing as the auctioneers had friends and family members bidding against each other in fun.

Lee “Big Onion” Amos paid $125 for the Best of Show Mixed Berry pie baked by Sharry Chapman. Chapman had five best of shows among the cakes and pies at this year’s Coshocton County Fair. Amos and his good friend Tom Roahrig from Triple ‘R” Stables are among the faithful who attend the cake and pie auction each year and give their support to the bakers.

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
