Wise Doughty School Auction

Every year the Wise Doughty School benefit auction is held near Charm, OH. It is way out in the country, but very well attended by locals and visitors. They auction off small items to major furniture items. Some of the furniture is very nice hand built from solid wood.

The parking lot is interesting, with cars, buggies and horses. The auction itself is in a series of tents, and there are multiple auctions going on at any one time. There is lots of food too. Of interest is the chicken grill, 5 racks of chicken, each manned by a volunteer. Every 30 seconds or so every rack is turned to prevent burning.

Overall, a fun event, even though it was extra hot. Below are some pictures. I have tried to minimize direct pictures of the Amish people as it is frowned on by their religion.

July 8, 2018

Today was actually an arrival date, and we gathered from around the country.  Mostly the South and Michigan… there was an excellent turnout of some 35 people.  Irby and Judy Gamble did an outstanding job of getting everything ready for us and making us feel at home.

Of course, this requires food, and the women of the group did an outstanding job.  Everything was excellent and there was lots of food left over.  Preliminary plans for what to do the rest of the week were made.

After dinner we gathered in groups, some with a fire, some without.  In any case, the usual tall tales were told and we all enjoyed an evening of companionship.
