Working with choir director, Chuck Snyder is something Barrick says she really enjoys and she feels privileged to be involved in these choirs. “He is a wealth of knowledge and I respect his opinion,” she said. “I am amazed at how he creates and puts these concerts together each season. When you live in a small community like this, it makes it so special to get to work with such talent every week,” she said. “And it’s all for the glory of God.” Barrick will be playing for the upcoming Coshocton Community Choir concert on May 1 at 3 p.m. at Coshocton High School’s McKinley Auditorium, 1205 Cambridge Road, in Coshocton. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and are available at the door.

a 116-year-old Coshocton business still growing and going strong

by beth sCott


April 27th, 1951 Kick up your spurs! The Coshocton High School junior and freshman class were throwing a western-themed party in the gymnasium. The fun kicked off that evening with the junior party and the freshman party took place the next evening. The party promised to be a lot of fun for any student with a little cowboy or cowgirl in him. There was to be square dancing, round dancing and card games. Each home room class also presented a skit that was judged by a panel of faculty members. Yeehaw!


April 27th, 1961 The Coshocton Redskins handed the Newcomerstown Trojans a defeat the previous Wednesday with a score of 8-1. The Coshocton boys scored in the first five innings, dashing the Trojans’ dream of victory. The Trojans scored a run in the seventh inning, but that wasn’t enough as the Redskins were already up by eight. Bill McConnell and Kenny Sturtz had two hits and four at-bats for the Redskins. McConnell also had two runs for the team. The Redskins were scheduled to play Dover that night and hopefully still had some of their momentum left.


April 27th, 1971 The 97th Kentucky Derby was soon approaching and after the National Anthem and the singing of “My Old Kentucky Home”, the River View High School band would give the world’s finest racehorses a good ol’ Coshocton County sendoff. The 130-member band had a full trip ahead of them including a tribute to America in the Pegasus Parade, a concert at Louisville Downs and performances leading up to the Derby. They also planned a tour of President Lincoln’s home and the Mammoth Cave, along with a boat ride down the Ohio River. Director J.P. Branahm hoped the band would be featured on TV.


All information was obtained from microfilm of the Coshocton Tribune at the Coshocton County Library.

May 2nd, 1981 The Coshocton County winners of the ‘Be Kind to Animals Week’ poster contest were announced. They were selected from each grade level throughout the elementary county schools and received a savings bond and cash from Bank One. Posters were judged by members of the Coshocton County Fine Arts Guild. All posters were to be on display in the Coshocton downtown merchant windows during the Be Kind to Animals Week.

Products Association International) in 1953. The editor was intrigued and asked more questions, eventually requesting an interview. She told Coffman that in the April edition of PPB, they were having a special feature on calendars and wanted to do a showcase featuring The Novelty Advertising Company. Coffman jumped at the idea and scheduled a phone interview with the editor. In their April edition, PPB featured, ‘Elliot Calendar Co.: Marking the days for more than a century’. The article is available to read online at Type in “Novelty Advertising” into the search bar to view the article. The Elliot Calendar Company, which is a part of Novelty Advertising, manufactures calendars for thousands of distributors across the country. They produce 60 different types of calendars, everything from desk pad calendars to large wall calendars. They are one of only two companies that still manufacture day-to-day calendars. Their biggest seller is the #43 Almanac Calendars, which features the farmer’s almanac, and the design of the calendar hasn’t changed in 80 years. Coffman said that usually customers like the traditional calendars and designs, although some prefer to have something different every year. Coffman also said the business has been tracking popularity of calendars and finds that while more people are using digital calendars, most prefer to have a paper calendar available in front of them to write down appointments and to be able to quickly refer to when needed. But the Novelty Advertising Company is so much more than calendars. They can print logos on just about anything, everything from teeshirts to water bottles to Frisbees. They can also print posters, fliers, brochures or programs for any organization. “It’s an opportunity for folks in Coshocton to do business with a company, a manufacturer in Coshocton,” said Coffman. Coffman has always been passionate about keeping the business locally-owned and in the family. In 1917, Coffman’s great-grandfather started working at Novelty and became an officer of the company. After his death, the president of the company contacted Coffman’s grandfather and he began working in 1935, staying for 30 years. His father became involved in 1965 and Greg came on in 1997 after leaving a job in Cleveland because he wanted to keep the company locally-owned. “Coshocton is a good place,” said Coffman, “It’s a great town and I thought, I at least owe this opportunity a shot. The last thing I wanted was for Coshocton to lose a business. When I look at Coshocton, I look at what we have, not at what we’ve lost. I think if we do more of that, we’ll have not only a better attitude, but we’ll be appreciative of what we do have.” The Novelty Advertising Company is located at 1148 Walnut Street and can be contact at 622-3113 or (800) 848-9163. Their Web site is



In the late 1800s, a newspaper man named Jasper Meek strolled down the dusty Main Street of Coshocton. He saw a young girl with a pile of books in her hands, which she suddenly dropped, sending dust everywhere. This made a big impression on Jasper and he came up with a clever solution: a burlap bag for school children to carry their books. He decided to contact his good friend from Cantwell Shoes and told him his new idea. He asked his friend if he would give each school child who came into his store to purchase shoes a new burlap book bag with Cantwell Shoes’ logo printed on it. The school children would receive something they could use and the popular shoe store would be advertised on each bag. It was a huge success. Business at Cantwell Shoes had never been better, and Jasper continued to receive orders for more items with company logos imprinted on them. He called his friend William Shaw and in 1886, started the first promotional product industry in the country, which today is a $20 billion industry. “It’s still a booming industry,” said Greg Coffman, president of Novelty Advertising, “and it all started right here in Coshocton.” Together, William and Jasper created many promotional products on any item imaginable in the late 1800s including horse blankets, rulers, fuel gages, metal signs, metal trays, carpenter aprons, and flyswatters. William worked with Jasper for 10 years until he eventually broke away from Jasper and started his own business in 1895, The Novelty Advertising Company, which is still in Coshocton today and still operates in the same building as it did when it was born. The business quickly began to grow and was incorporated in the state of Ohio in 1900. Coshocton used to have 12 promotional product companies in the county. Instead of being in competition with each other, these companies worked together to create new and innovative products for their community. Over time, however, the bigger companies were bought out and the smaller companies faded away, leaving only The Novelty Advertising Company and The Beach Company, both of which were recognized as being one of only about 15 companies in the industry 100 years old or older. “It’s an exciting industry,” said Coffman, “It’s a fun industry and it’s something that Coshocton should be very proud of that it started here and it’s continued on today.” Recently, this 116 year old business was featured in the April edition of PPB, Promotional Products Business. This leading-industry publisher is recognized world-wide, highlighting and showcasing trends in the promotional product industry and reporting on innovative and upcoming products. At a PPI (Promotional Product Industry) conference in Las Vegas, Coffman spoke with the editor of PPB about The Novelty Advertising Company. He told her a little of its history and e-mailed her some photos of his grandfather, who was president of PPAI (Promotional

The Fresno Bible Church Relay Team will be having a silent auction on May 1 at the church to raise money for Relay for Life. Bidding will be from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Some of the items up for auction will be an autographed picture of Kentucky basketball coach, John Calapari; five Cleveland Indians tickets, first row by the visitor’s dug out; an autographed basketball by CBS announcer, Clark Kellog; and items signed by West Virginia basketball coach, Bob Huggins, which will include a basketball, a photo, a set of cups featuring his picture and autograph, and one limited-edition basket with a photo of Coach Huggins and his mother, who passed away from cancer. Only 3500 of the baskets were ever produced.

Charity Kiefner has been announced as the United Way Volunteer of the Month for April 2011. Charity volunteers for Union Recreation starting as a coach five years ago and now has stepped up to be the president when no one else would take it on. Since becoming the president, she has made many improvements to the rec, including better fields, equipment, uniforms and concessions. “Our recreation is truly better due to Charity’s commitment to improve our organization,” said Union treasurer, Heather Filimon, “She is a wonderful person with a huge heart. Union Rec thanks Charity for all she has done.” Charity lives with her husband, Andrew and daughter Kirsten. She works out of the home and also started the Union Aces volleyball program for girls in 3rd – 6th grade.

area senior high school singers perform last concert with by Jan myers Coshocton youth Chorale Twenty-one seniors with the Coshocton Youth Chorale will be singing for the last time as part of the Coshocton Community Choir’s upcoming spring concert, Soli Deo Gloria. The concert will be Sunday, May 1 at 3 p.m. at Coshocton High School’s McKinley Auditorium. The 12-grade singers include Trent Adams, Kyle Blust, Shawna Carling, Kyle Conrad, Corey Elliott, Stephanie Ellis, McKayla Evans, Meredith Evans, Neal Fox, Brad Harvey, Katie Hildreth, Elizabeth Hilgenberg, Kasi Karr, Cody Kirker, Jenna Kreider, John Lindig, Michael Ondayko, Aaron Owens, Melanie Rice, Dolly Sylacsa, and Colby Tarrh. Many of the students have been a part of the Youth Chorale, under the direction of Charles R. Snyder, for a number of years. Brad Harvey

is a senior at Ridgewood High School and has been singing in the Youth Chorale for three years. “This choir has been a good experience for me,” he said. “It is nice to see people from other schools and I would encourage others to join this choir. If you enjoy singing, this choir is a great experience.” Elizabeth Hilgenberg is a senior at Coshocton High School, has been a four-year member of the group, and was a five-year member of the Children’s Choir. “Mr. Snyder is amazing,” she said. “I love the music and the people. It is so much fun. I was hooked from the first year. Everyone in the group gets along even though we are from different high schools.” John Lindig is a senior at Coshocton County Career Center in the Culinary Arts program

and has been a four-year member of the Youth Chorale. “I am in the choir because of Mr. Snyder’s shameless recruiting,” he said. “I came to a rehearsal one night with a friend and was asked to audition for the group. I enjoy singing and have made many friends in this choir, friends who’ve helped me through some difficult times.” Meredith Evans is a senior at Ridgewood High School and has been singing in the choir for three years. She was also a five-year member of the Children’s Choir. “It is so much fun to sing, especially in Mr. Snyder’s choir,” she said. “I enjoy singing with the other students from the other high schools and then when each of our high schools do the school musicals, we get together and attend each other’s shows.”

liberty Church hosts easter egg hunt Civil war dance mistress to visit by mark fortune Coshocton by Jan myers

The Coshocton County courthouse lawn was decorated with plastic colored Easter eggs of all colors on Easter morning for the Liberty Church Easter egg hunt. The church, located on Main Street in Coshocton, hosted a large Easter egg hunt at the Courtsquare following their Easter morning church service. Pastor Andy Loos said, “This is the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. When you have a celebration, that’s a party so we’re throwing a party for Jesus and his resurrection and also have an opportunity for kids to get out and hunt eggs. It’s a lot of fun for them. I think we have a total of 5,000 eggs here. We’ve had a lot of hard work from our volunteers stuffing every egg with candy or prize coupons. This is an opportunity to celebrate but also to draw people in and let them hear the good news of Jesus Christ.” The courthouse was divided into age defined areas by large balloons and shouts of glee filled the morning air as children of all ages ran to and fro filling baskets and buckets with brightly colored plastic Easter eggs filled with candies or gift certificates.

There will be a Civil War Ball on Aug. 13 as part of the Civil War Encampment Days at the Coshocton Airport Grounds.
