New Salem Lions' consignment sale nears

Items arriving daily for Feb. 22 sale

A farm auction and consignment sale that began in 1967 as a means to generate monies for the philanthropy efforts of the New Salem Lions’ Club is currently accepting items for this year’s event.

According to organizers, although they have had verbal commitments from a number of individuals and items are arriving daily, they are arriving at a slower pace than in recent years.

According to Lions’ Club member Mike Niedenthal, he and others think the cold weather has had an impact on the early arrival of many items. They expect that to change in the coming days.

“We are open and accepting items beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing until 4 p.m. daily until the 19th,” Larry Johnson said.

The sale is the main fundraiser for the New Salem Lions’ Club, and additional monies generated at the Lions Club booth during the annual running of the Rush County Fair are given back to the community through charitable donations to a number of service groups and organizations: Relay for Life, eye glasses for needy school children and the annual Lions Club Christmas party for underprivileged children in the community to name a few.

The sale originated in the community of Orange, prior to out-growing the space and relocating to the current site on U.S. 52 in New Salem in 1974.

According to Max Brock, currently 186 items have been received, logged in and tagged in preparation for the sale.

He continued by saying that a number of large items have already arrived and more are on the way.

Club member Larry Johnson said that verbal commitments have been received for soon to arrive items from individuals in Ohio as well as throughout the state.

Items to be placed in the sale will be accepted until 4 p.m., Feb. 19.

The annual consignment sale is held rain, snow or shine beginning at 9 a.m. the final Saturday of February and organizers are expecting this year’s event to be one of the best.

Additional information regarding the event can be obtained by calling (765) 932-3872.
