Hicks and Hayseeds to host silent auction at fair

Members of the Hicks and Hayseeds 4-H Club of Hanoverton have been putting together a “Merry Christmas” silent auction basket for next week’s Columbiana County Fair. The basket consists of a 4-foot lighted tree covered with homemade ornaments and scratch-off lottery tickets and various other Christmas decorations, including a handmade stained glass candle holder, hand-stitched Santa and reindeer and a handmade tree skirt. This basket, and others, can be seen in the Junior Fair building at the fair. Proceeds from the basket auction support the 4-H program county-wide.
