RANSOMVILLE – The Ransomville Community Faire is planned from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 8, sponsored by the Ransomville Historical Preservation Society.

The event will take place behind Ransomville Free Library, 3733 Ransomville Road.

“It’s a family venue,” said Nancy White, a member of the Historical Society. “We’ve had it for 15 to 20 years, and each year it gets better.”

New this year will be demonstrations by Mercy Flight. Look for old favorites like the Garden Club’s plant sale, library’s book sale, classic car cruise and antique tractor show.

White said the treats offered at the baked goods sale “go very quickly,” and there will be plenty of other food for sale as well.

Entertainment includes the Lakeside Blues Band, Hot Country Liners, and Step in Time. A bounce house and clown round out the children’s entertainment.

“We are also holding a basket auction in the historical museum behind the library,” White noted.

“The historical museum is located in the original Ransomville Post Office building, which was moved to the library grounds,” she said.

“We added on a large room, and we have a lot of displays there,” she continued. “We are just finishing up one on wedding dresses, and we have lots of pictures, and there’s another display on baby pictures. We have a 1930s kitchen all set up, we have a lot of local family farm items, and we have World War II artifacts. We really have a lot there to see, and people can tour the museum that day, too.”

Free parking for the event will be offered at W.H. Stevenson School next to the library.
