Coshocton Junior Woman’s Club to have jamboree

| October 21, 2016

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton Junior Woman’s Club will feature a fun night out with friends during their second annual jamboree, which will be Friday, Nov. 4 from 6 – 9 p.m. at the Coshocton Elks, located at 434 Chestnut St., Coshocton.

“We had a great turnout last year,” said Amy Stockdale, member of the club. “It was just a really fun event and we’re hoping to have another fun event this year.”

During the event, a Mossberg Combo Shotgun will be raffled off. Raffle tickets are $5 and can be purchased from any Junior Woman’s Club member. If the winner of the raffle doesn’t want the gun, they can receive a gift card for the cost of the gun from Woodbury Outfitters.

Entertainment for the evening includes live music from Roscoe Transit Authority and a sweets and treats auction with John Rice of Peddicord Rice Auctioneer serving as auctioneer.

“This was super popular last year,” said Stockdale. “Everybody in the club donates a baked good to be auctioned off.”

Tickets for the event are $20, which includes a dinner catered by the Elks with baked chicken, green beans, cheesy potatoes, and salad bar. All money raised stays in Coshocton County. Tickets can be purchased from any club member or by calling the chamber at 740-622-5411.

“We want everyone to come out and have a good time, and it allows them to give back to the community as well,” said Shantelle Coffman, president of the group.

Groups and organizations write letters to the club asking for a donation and members vote and decide how much each organization receives. Last year, the Junior Woman’s Club gave $5,600 back to the community.

The Coshocton Junior Woman’s Club began on March 11, 1912 and promotes community service. They have meetings the second Wednesday of each month September through May at various locations with about 29 active members and 36 associate members. New members are welcome.

“We invite the community to come out and support a group who are trying to do good things in Coshocton,” said Stockdale.
