The Amish community in Wayne County is set to hold a special auction filled with farm equipment, antique kitchen tools, handcrafted quilts, and even livestock on Saturday, August 19.

This fundraising event initially reported by the Times of Wayne County is scheduled at the former Barbara Jean’s furniture warehouse in North Rose.


It seeks to support Gideon and Malinda Miller of Lyons.

Gideon, who had previously lost a leg in an accident and subsequently got a prosthetic, is now faced with the challenge of replacing it due to an infection.

The tight-knit community and well-wishers have generously donated an array of unique items, ranging from antique kitchen gadgets to modern tools.

Attendees can also relish a homemade meal, complete with breakfast offerings from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and a full-course dinner at noon, lovingly prepared by Amish women of the community.

The public event, promising raffles and a family-friendly atmosphere, kicks off its bidding at 9 a.m.. Those wishing to make a monetary contribution can do so through the Amish Medical Funds at LNB Bank.
