Sale items arriving in New Salem

RUSHVILLE — Individuals from near and far have started bringing items to the New Salem Lions Club grounds for this year’s farm equipment and consignment sale. Building from the first event that was held in the community of Orange in 1967 that generated $300 for the service club to last year’s profits of nearly $82,000, this year’s organizers are preparing for one of the largest sales ever.

“It was pretty small that first year, but then again, in comparison to the economy back then I think we did pretty darn good,” one of this year’s organizers said earlier this week.

What began as “just a little old sale” has since turned into a three-ring event that draws equipment buyers and sellers from multiple states.

Items for this year’s sale began arriving earlier this week and will continue to be accepted and tagged from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and until 4 p.m. Feb. 20 in preparation of the sale.

There are a couple of ground rules those thinking about taking an item to the sale should keep in mind.

“Only tires with tractor type tread on rims will be accepted and absolutely no household goods will be in the sale,” Larry Johnson said.

The annual farm equipment and consignment sale has become synonymous with the final Saturday in February for the nearly 50 years. This year will be no exception; the sale will be held rain or shine beginning at 9 a.m. Feb. 23.

Monies generated by the auction and consignment sale are given back to the community through a number of charitable donations to service groups and organizations by the New Salem Lions Club.  

Additional information regarding the annual event can be obtained by calling the Lions Club at 765-932-5200 during the aforementioned hours.
