Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum Presents Wine on the Rails – Art Auction

I don’t know about your house, but in ours, when one of us volunteers to do an organizational project they get the both of us. I’m really not complaining, it’s Ginger that give more time than me. If I were keeping score, of what Ginger gives of her time and talents, she would be way ahead of yours truly.

Ginger has told me more than once, that the Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum is one of the best museums to visit within 100 miles of our home. This is why she volunteers to host their annual Wine on the Rails Art Auction each year. I simply tag along, and bring my checkbook.

This year’s event, on September 20, 2014 from 7-9 p.m. will feature one local art exhibit. And, guess who’s the special artist? Ginger of course. Not just because she’s my wife, but her talents exceed the average Joe. She’s not only a certified Bob Ross instructor, but she also does stain glass, Acrylics, Water Color, clay sculptures, purses, teddy bears, and garden art – just to name a few.

I have to admit, the evening is a fun time, and while you’re mingling with attendees, you’re also helping the museum raise capital for their annual expenditures to keep the museum open.

The annual event features a Wine and Beer Tasting from the Winery at Versailles and local distributors of imported beer. There’s a Hobo Auction and raffle to help you spend your hard earned cash. Like Ginger tells me, “everyone in Bradford should be a member of the Museum, and help them raise capital every year, because this is their heritage.”

The hobo auction is simply a “quarter auction” that charges $l.00 instead of 25¢ for you to take a chance for the item being raffled. There’s also a Silent Auction and a Live Auction, featuring local auctioneer Richard Edwards.

Reservations received by September 13th, 2014 are $20 per person and $25 after and at the door. Tickets will be held at the door. Make checks payable to B.O.R.M. and mail to PO Box 101, Bradford, OH. 45308

This week’s bottom line: If you’ve never been to the B.O.R.M. this would be a good way to see it up close and personal; and a chance to keep it running the year around. You’ll also get a chance to feel what giving to a good cause is all about.
