Holmes County Steam and Power Show (Mt. Hope)

August 3-5, 2017
The Steam and Engine show is held annually on the first weekend in August. The show features a Horse Pull on Thursday evening, Tractor and Steam Engine Pulls Friday evening, and Steam Engine and Antique Tractor activities throughout the weekend. The steam traction engine was the predecessor of the gas tractor. It was used for belt and drawbar work. The steam engine used fire to heat the water in the boiler to make steam. It then used the expansive force of steam in a cylinder to create power. The steam engines at the show will be kept busy powering a sawmill, threshing machines, power-eater, Baker fans, steam engine games, and spark shows at night. Admission: $5.00, Children 12 and under are free.

Ohio Haiti Benefit Auction (Mt. Hope)

Ohio Haiti Benefit AuctionSeptember 1-2, 2017
This is a cooperative effort of many churches and individuals to bring relief to the hungry, the sick, the naked, and the homeless people of Haiti. Our ultimate goal is to bring them to Christ. Relief is given without regard to race, religion, color, or creed. The Haiti Benefit Auction is held once a year on Labor Day weekend. The Ohio Haiti Benefit Auction was born in 1987 by brethren who, seeing the great need, had compassion on the poor people in Haiti. We are a channel through which people can contribute with auction items, or by helping. All labor is donated; all workers and board members are expected to pay for what they eat. There are no salaries and no commissions. All auction proceeds go 100% to the many missions in Haiti which are required to give a financial report, meet certain standards, and show proper use of funds in the past. It is a serious responsibility, and wisdom is sought from the Lord for guidance in this task.
