COSHOCTON -- Where in the world is the chamber auction?
The 2012 Coshocton County Chamber auction, which is traditionally held in mid-March, has been delayed this year due to a technical glitch. Because of the closing of the business that provided IT support for a number of years, the chamber is making arrangements with another company to provide the online support. It will not be possible to make those arrangements in time to hold the auction at the traditional mid-March time. Therefore, the auction is being postponed.
The chamber of commerce does not intend to cancel the auction rather to make the long-standing annual event bigger and better than ever.
The first chamber auction was on the back of a flat-bed truck and, as technology developed, went to an all-online format in 2011. Over the years, Coshocton County businesses have been very generous with their donations and because of this the chamber has not raised dues in more than ten years.
The future date of the chamber of commerce auction will be announced as soon as possible.
