Chairs will be judges by attendees at the craft show and at 2 p.m., chairs will be awarded first, second and third place plaques. Following the awards, all chairs will be auctioned off on the outdoor stage at Hier’s Park. All auction proceeds will benefit Huntington County Special Olympics and the YMCA’s Champions League.
