Bidders stir it up at pie auction

| October 4, 2017

COSHOCTON – The annual pie auction at the Coshocton County Fair typically brings out some spirited bidders to compete for their favorite pie. The auction was held on Monday evening, Oct. 2 at the Rotary Pavilion with a nice crowd in attendance. Local auctioneers devoted their time and talent to raise funds for the bakers and the art hall. The monies raised at the auction are split between the art hall and the bakers. State Representative Larry Householder and his wife Taundra (pictured) had the winning bid on the best of show peach pie baked by Lincoln Humphrey which went for $150. All three Coshocton County Commissioners were on hand to bid on their favorite pie. Pecan, peach, cherry, apple crumb and mixed berry were among the pies entered and sold at the auction. A spirited bidding war – all in good fun – was between one of the auctioneer’s wives and Charlie Wright of Quality Painting for the first place pecan pie baked by Pam McMorrow. At the end, Wright walked away with the pie with a winning bid of $160.

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; 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.
