The 6th Annual Auglaize Harvest Fest is helping people get ready for fall and helping the senior citizens of the county as well.

The Auglaize County Fairgrounds was full of activities for the family at this years festival.  People got the chance to shop for decorations, food and other items from one of the many vendors that took part.  Plus kids got to play games and pet some farm animals, and car lovers had the chance to check out some of their favorite rides.  The festival was started by the Auglaize County Council on Aging, which helps them raise awareness and money to continue their mission.

Bob Warren, the Ex Dir. for Auglaize Council on Aging says  "We lost a lot of money from out funding several years ago, we did this (Auglaize Harvestfest) to raise money so we didn’t lose any services for the seniors of Auglaize County.  The annual Harvestfest brings awareness to what the Council on Aging is doing for the citizens of Auglaize County.  There are a lot of things that a lot of people don’t know about and this helps give an understanding for what we provide."

Warren says that the festival feels like a big family reunion with all of the people that attend. All proceeds raised during the Harvest Fest goes toward Senior Service programs.
