Canal Lewisville UMC holds festival

| November 22, 2013

CANAL LEWISVILLE – When Canal Lewisville United Methodist Church first started its fall festival it was a gathering of farmers and their wives.

“The farmers would auction off livestock and other goods and their wives would bring in baked goods,” said Michelle Darner.

Seventy-four years later the festival is still going strong, but the items available are now a little bit different. Lunch and dinner is served and tables of handmade crafts and baked goods are sold along with church cookbooks.

Proceeds from the Nov. 22 event will help with mission projects and Coshocton Circles, a program designed to help end poverty.

“The festival is wonderful,” Darner said, while taking a break from working in the kitchen. “It’s a chance to work with church friends and do a lot of sampling.”

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
