Coshocton Junior Woman’s Club to have Fall Freezer Fling at The Riverfront

| October 13, 2015

COSHOCTON – Instead of having its annual bargain fair this year, members of the Junior Woman’s Club are trying something different. They will be having a Fall Freezer Fling from 6 – 9 p.m. on Oct. 24 at the Riverfront Lounge located at 51 Pine St. in Coshocton.

The event will be catered by Schumaker Farms and feature pulled pork, cheesy potatoes, baked beans, cole slaw, corn bread, and apple crisp. Beverages will include iced tea and lemonade. Beer will be available for purchase or bring your own wine. A carry-out dinner will also be available.

Don’t miss magician Matt Gauerke as he travels from table to table performing up-close and personal magic tricks. Live music will also be provided by Craig Dukes, John Dotson, Bill Henderson, and John Cullison. Other activities include a pie and cake walk, a 50/50 drawing, face painting for the kids, and a photo opp area.

The highlight of the event will be the announcing of the winner of the freezer and whole hog. The winner does not need to be present during the dinner. Tickets for the raffle are $10 for one and $25 for three. This weekend, members of the Junior Woman’s Club will be at Dr. Darr’s selling raffle tickets during the Fall Foliage Tour on Saturday and Sunday.

Only 400 raffle tickets for the hog and freezer package will be sold. The package includes a freezer with a whole hog, processed and freezer wrapped, along with a basket of Wiley’s Finest fish oil products. The freezer and hog package is sponsored by Larry and Tina Endsley, Todd and Leanne Endsley, Endsley Insurance and Real Estate Agency, The Novelty Advertising Company, Wiley’s Finest, and Wal-Mart.

This is the Junior Woman’s Club’s only fundraiser and all proceeds stay in the community. Organizations can write to the club each year requesting funds. Last year, the organization gave to Coshocton is Blooming, First Step, Dollars for Scholars, Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum, Pregnancy Distress Center, Williams Syndrome, River View High School, United Way, Coshocton General Health District, Habitat for Humanity, Encore Honors Choir, and Children Service Art Project.

“Our main goal is giving back to the community as much as we possibly can with the money we raise,” said Coffman.

The Junior Woman’s Club has been in the community for more than 100 years. They have approximately 40 active members, 45 associate members, and 15 honorary members. They are always looking for new members to join. You must know someone in the club to be a member.

“We would love to have more members,” said Coffman. “We would love to have more women help with more creative ideas.”

The club has monthly luncheons at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum the second Wednesday of each month at noon.

“It’s like a fellowship with other ladies,” said Coffman. “It’s a way to give back to the community and be around other women who feel the same way.”

Tickets for the dinner and the raffle can be purchased from any Junior Woman’s Club member, Family Eye Care located at 535 Chestnut St., or Novelty Advertising at 1148 Walnut St. Tickets for the dinner are $15.

“We would just like to invite the community out to a fun evening,” said Amy Stockdale, a member of the Junior Woman’s Club. “It’s something fun to do in the community.”
