This year is our first year for participating in this benefit for our local Twin City Hospital. Nathan Paternoster made the two wreaths that we donated to this worthy cause. Hope and I went up tonight to view all the gorgeous wreaths and more that were on display at the Trainmaster Inn in Dennison, OH. Below are the pictures of our two wreaths that we donated. We hope that if you are in the area, that you will stop by and place a bid....it goes to such a worthy cause!
Below is the article that appeared in the Times Reporter newspaper for this special fund raising event...........
DENNISON, OH —
Twin City Hospital Employee Auxiliary will host its 10th annual Wreaths and More Extravaganza beginning Sunday. This year’s event will again be held in the Trainmaster Inn at 408 Grant St., Dennison.
Donated wreaths and various holiday decorations will be on display Sunday from noon to 8 and Monday through Nov. 21 from 11 to 1 p.m. and 4 to 8. Adult admission is $2, which provides unlimited entry to the event. Children are admitted free. Cookies and punch will be served.
Those wishing to purchase a wreath or decoration may do so by placing silent bids throughout the event.
The past several years of the event have featured several unique and original pieces such as an Ohio State University themed wreath, a wine lovers themed wreath with a gift certificate to an area winery, and other sport and collector’s themed decorations.
There also have been beautiful centerpieces with greenery, pine and hurricane candles.
Those attending also will have the opportunity to tour the first floor of the Trainmaster Inn.
“The Trainmaster Inn is the perfect showcase for our fundraiser,” said Tiffany Poland, chairman for the event and an Employee Auxiliary member. “The bed and breakfast is fully decorated for the Christmas season and is truly a sight to see. It is well worth the $2 admission to see the inn, not to mention the added bonus of our event.”
“We are excited to house the Twin City Hospital Employee Auxiliary Wreaths and More Extravaganza at the Trainmaster Inn again this year,” said Greg DiDonato, owner of the Trainmaster Inn and a Twin City Hospital board member. “This is a great fundraiser for the employee auxiliary, and all of the money benefits the hospital.”
