Welcome from The Chamber

Living In Holmes County

t first glance, Holmes County seems a contradiction: progressive businesses that embrace cutting edge technology vs. an old-fashioned culture that honors simplicity. In truth, the apparent contradiction actually helps secure Holmes County’s quality of life and thriving economy. The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau seeks to protect and promote this healthy balance by fostering a business-friendly environment. When businesses thrive, residents have a higher standard of living. Our community hosts cutting-edge companies such as ProVia Door, a leading residential entry door manufacturer. At the same time, we’re also home to the world’s largest Amish community. Manufacturing, tourism and agriculture are our three leading industries. And in Holmes County, the three go hand-inhand. We have the largest hardwood furniture manufacturing district in the nation, with more than 400 wood shops across the region. And consumers can choose locally produced fine furniture from 30 retail shops. So, the manufacturing facilities actually feed Shasta the retail shops, which rely on the more than four million tourists who visit Holmes County each year. In addition, many of the Amish craftsmen who build the furniture use the extra income to supplement their family income, which supports their agrarian way of life. The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau also serves as the visitor center for tourists in the area.

We display brochures, maps and event listings; promote the region through our Map & Visitors’ Guide, place ads in national and regional magazines and newspapers; list all of our member businesses on our website; promote the area through media relations; fulfill visitor packet requests; and answer more than 10,000 phone calls every year. Our website for visitors, www.visitamishcountry. com, receives about half a million unique visits annually. The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau is here to help our members succeed. And we do so through many member benefits, such as: a workers’ compensation group-rating program; discount on group health insurance; Safety Council; monthly membership meetings; The Hardwood Furniture Guild; Amish Country Lodging Council; and tracking of local, state and national issues that impact local businesses. If you’re not a current Holmes County Chamber member, I encourage you to learn more about us. By working together, we can ensure Holmes County’s economy remains strong, while preserving the culture, landscape and small-town feel that makes us so special. Mast

Four Venues, One Location - Come home to a time when elegance and opulence defined a culture. Step back in time and experience Victorian living in a 28-room mansion, the Victorian House Museum and see the largest exhibit of Millersburg glass on public display and finish your your tour with a memorable meal at the Castle Club for groups of 20 or more booked in advance. Take a step back in time to Victorian elegance and charm as you step through the massive wooden front door into a foyer, boasting a grand white oak staircase, that still breathes the life of its former residents. Built in 1902 by a wealthy industrialist from Cleveland, no expense was spared in construction of the mansion, one of the finest examples of Queen Anne architecture in Ohio. From top to bottom, ballroom to basement, the Victorian House rooms feature many themed collections of the Holmes County Historical Society. The house has been featured on both HGTV and Victorian Home Magazine. It’s not just physical vestiges of past residents that remain in the home... so do their spirits. After several investigations by members of the Central Ohio Paranormal Research Group, there’s no question the house is haunted. Special paranormal group tours can be arrange by appointment. The Millersburg Glass Museum has found a new, permanent home on the campus of the Holmes County Cultural Center Campus. Located on the lower level of the main building, the museum is handicap-accessible in a facility that has been renovated, designed to highlight the glass and its history. Inside the interpretive room, guests can familiarize themselves with the history of the local glass plant, its workers and owner, John Fenton. Beyond, they’ll absorb the chronological arrangement of the magnificent glasswork created from within the bowels of the factory and its kilns. Find out why these sterling masterpieces remain works of art cherished by collectors worldwide. Ask about featured pieces and collections on loan to the museum from some of these private collectors. The Holmes County Genealogical Society has relocated to the lower level of the cultural center. Convenient and now centrally located, the society offers complete family history research with an archive library and research center. Cap off, or even jump start, your visit to our campus with a relaxing stop in our Castle Club, where custom catered lunch, dinner and tea can be made part of your tour package for groups of 20 or more. Located within the walls of the former historic Lessie Lee house, itself a masterful work of architecture built for a descendant of the Victorian House lineage, the Castle Club boasts a picturesque view of theVictorian House and, in a variety of rooms seats groups of varying sizes. Ask how we can make your tour package an experience.

The Holmes County Fairgrounds

The Holmes County Fair is enjoying its new home at Harvest Ridge, about a mile west of town on the south side of Ohio Route 39 thanks to a lot of people stepping up to the plate to raise more than $7 million for the construction and development of the new facility. The following is a timeline showing what it takes to develop the dream of a few people into a reality. In 2004 after another flood left the old fairgrounds under water, Dave Hall, a Holmes County Commissioner and Fair Board President Kerry Taylor talked about the need to relocate. The Holmes County commissioners authorized $10,000 for a feasibility study. Then in 2005, there were discussions amidst the business community about construction of a year-round event center that could house the fair as well as other activities. In 2009, local businessman Paul Weaver, owner of Weaver Leather Products, purchased an 85-acre farm known as the Shreiner Farm. Weaver donated 10 acres for the construction of New Pointe Church, and then donated the remaining 74 acres to the Holmes County Agricultural Society. The fair board was obligated to install water and sewer lines from Millersburg to the location. Plans were drawn up for design of the fairgrounds, and in March of 2010, Weaver purchased an additional 11 acres and awarded them to the Agricultural Society. In the fall of 2011, area businessman Bill Baker offered the fair board $200,000 for the first structure on the property, and a partnership between Share-A-Christmas and the fairgrounds was born. Share-A-Christmas uses the Baker Building throughout November and December to serve more than 300 families, while the fair board operates the building the rest of the year. The next year, Arlie and Evelyn Rodhe, owners of the local IGA, agreed to afund the restoration of the original farm barn on the property that is more than 100 years old. A capital campaign, started in 2010 with a $3,000 donation in memory of long-time fair supporter Mike Smith, exceeded $2 million in cash, in-kind and grants. In the spring of 2012, Historic Downtown Millersburg Director Tom Wilke was hired on a part-time basis to be the Harvest Ridge project manager. With the assistance of fundraising expert Matthew Hughes, they began towards a goal of raising $6 million. Groundbreaking of the Baker Building and the first Share-A-Christmas in December also took place that year. “We are so fortunate to live in a community of generous people who help each other beyond the normal measure,” Taylor said. “This campus will support hundreds of local youth with leadership and character building opportunities through 4-H and FFA. It will assist needy families during the annual Share-A-Christmas drive, plus it will support the local economy for generations by hosting ongoing local and regional events.”

By: Kevin Lynch Dix Communications

Through his tenure in Columbus as a State Representative, Dave Hall was active in the development of the new Holmes County Fairgrounds, and in the summer of 2014, he was successful in negotiating a $500,000 capital improvement line item into the state’s biennial budget. The money was earmarked for the construction of a 30,000 square-foot livestock arena and holding facilities. The unbelievable generosity of Sterling Humrichouser, a Holmes county farmer who died in 2015, came to light, as Humrichouser donated the majority of his property to the Holmes Agricultural Society, which netted more than $1 million when the farm was sold. The livestock building name was changed to the Tom, Eva and Sterling Humrichouser Livestock Facility, and plans were enhanced to make it more usable as a year-round exposition center. The project gained momentum as the Holmes County Hardwood Furniture Guild (HFG) pledged to get on board with a healthy donation and plans for a 60,000-foot arena and exposition center. Construction of the Humrichouser Building was under way in November 2015 as the project bid was won by local contractor Ivan Weaver Construction, with an expected completion date of June, 2016. Thanks to a relatively mild winter, the project was essentially completed by the end of May. In March of 2016, the Lions Club broke ground for its $80,000 permanent concession stand in the midway and the Holmes County Commissioners presented the fair board with a check for $150,000 to assist in the completion of the grounds. In April, 2016, in a final act to commemorate his time serving Holmes County as a State Representative, Hall once again helped procure $500,000 in capital appropriations to assist in the construction of an arena/expo center in collaboration with the HFG. Work on the midway, camp area and the electrical infrastructure was then underway and the Nicholson family agreed to fill in the gap on unfunded portions of the horse barn. Funds for the completion of the grandstand project were needed, and Millersburg Tire Service stepped up and earned the naming rights of the grandstands, bringing the total funds raised for the project close to $7 million. Community volunteers and members of the fair board teamed up to transfer nine sections of bleachers, the stage, lights and poles, as well as the Dairy Boosters Barn to the new grounds. Fundraising to enhance the facility will be ongoing. There are plenty of opportunities to help out. For more information about what you can do, feel free to contact the fair office at 330-674-0869. As Kerry Taylor says, there is only one place something like this could have occurred, and that is Holmes County, where the community came together and helped build a dream that will impact lives forever.

Website – www.berlinohio.com More Information – The Village of Berlin, located in eastern

Holmes County, is undeniably one of the busiest places in the entire “Ohio Amish Country” area. Holmes County – along with its surrounding counties – is home to the largest settlement of Amish people in the world, with Berlin as the center of the settlement. As interest in the lifestyle of the Amish has grown in recent years, Berlin has grown commercially. Its streets are lined with craft shops and other stores offering everything from handmade wooden furniture to whimsical Amish dolls and handmade crafts of all varieties. New bed-and-breakfasts, inns and other lodging facilities have sprung up, while a variety of restaurants offer traditional Amish-style cooking. Before the Amish became Berlin’s main attraction, it was known for being the first village formed in Holmes County and the home of the first factory in the county, the Braden and Hassock Farm Implement and Iron Company. In 1811, Berlin’s earliest settlers were John Swigert and Samuel Knight, who brought their families from Maryland. Swigert selected a spot on his land for a town and named it Berlin – after his hometown in Germany. He platted 108 lots, with the deed dated Feb. 18, 1816. Today Berlin is best known for its tourist attractions – from the unique gift galleries and craft shops to hotels and restaurants. The wide variety of activities and shops will make any traveler’s visit to Berlin a memorable one.

THE GERMAN CULTURE MUSEUM

Contact Information – 4877 Olde Pump St., Walnut Creek;

(330) 763-1390, www.germanculturemuseum.com. Hours – May-Oct., Thursday-Saturday, Noon-4 p.m. Call for private tours or expanded hours. Admission – Donations are accepted. Amenities – The museum houses an impressive collection of area memorabilia, including a 14”X20” portrait of Holmes County’s first Amish settler, Jonas Stutzman. Also featured are displays of German and Swiss culture, including furniture, vehicles, tools, quilts, textiles, folk art and photographs. Guided tours are available with knowledgeable volunteer guides. History – The Walnut Creek area was originally settled by Amish pioneers from Somerset, Pa. In 1803, an exploring party surveyed the region and selected a location for settlement. A 21-year-old Amish man, Jonas Stutzman, arrived in the spring of 1809 and settled on land just southwest of the current town of Walnut Creek. He became the first permanent settler in Eastern Holmes County and is considered “The Father of Amish Country.” Since those early beginnings, Walnut Creek has experienced many changes, including a name change (it was originally called New Carlisle). But the common denominator has been the Amish and Mennonite residents, the descendents of those early pioneers who selected this area as their ideal home. Those original settlers brought with them the traditions, tools, equipment, culture and stories of the Old Country, Switzerland and Germany. The German Culture Museum seeks to be keeper of history in the township – displaying items and keeping record of happenings since the pioneer days. We are pleased to keep the old stories alive and pass on the appreciation of where we have been and ultimately, to see more clearly where we are going. It’s more than a collection of antiques, old photos and yellowed newspaper clippings – it’s a place where the foundation of the world’s largest Amish community can be inspected, studied and actually touched. When you visit Ohio’s Amish Country, don’t pass up the opportunity to visit our unique museum. We’re affiliated with the Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center in Berlin, home of the cyclorama “Behalt.” Painted by Hans Gaugel, “Behalt” describes the persecution of Mennonites and Amish in Europe, the exodus to the New World, and their migration as pioneers throughout the USA.


Culture & Recreation Focusing specifically on the history and settlement of Holmes County and Walnut Creek Township, the German Culture Museum strives to give you a snapshot of life in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The museum is housed in the lower level of the new Walnut Creek Township building, which also is home to a public library and community meeting room.

Holmes County Rails to Trails Coalition

(330) 674-0475, holmestrail@embarqmail.com, www.holmestrail.org. Executive Director – Jen Halverson Hours – Daylight to dusk; buggy use is permitted from 6 a.m.-10 p.m. special-use permits may be obtained for group night rides or special events from the trail director. These events must be approved and planned in advance for notification of local law enforcement agencies. Users – Bicyclists, walkers, joggers, horseback riders, roller bladers, horse & buggies. More Information – In today’s society, when we wish to leave behind sounds and signs of civilization, we search for places of solitude. Trails offer gateways to miles of breathtaking beauty. The Holmes County Trails is a treasure not many communities have the opportunity to share with their neighbors and families. The trail is a great place to connect, reconnect and become reoriented with nature. Not every county in this nation has a natural corridor of beauty 29 miles long carving its heartland and owned in common by all its residents. At the heart of the Ohio to Erie Trail, the Holmes County Trail is dual surface transportation corridor with one 8-foot lane of asphalt for pedestrian, bicyclist, roller bladers and another 8-foot lane of chip and seal for horse and buggy traffic. The Holmes County Trail offers an opportunity to observe the community’s unique culture, lifestyle, and scenery. With more than $6 million in federal, state, and local funding the Holmes County Trail is halfway completed. Currently, just over 15 miles of the trail is paved and open, from Fredericksburg to Killbuck, leaving approximately 14 more miles yet to be completed. Upon completion of the 29 miles, Holmes and Knox counties will consist of more than 50 miles of uninterrupted trail, giving trail users one of the most unique recreational facilities in the region. Littering along trails is prohibited. TRAIL RULES A basic etiquette rule is wheels yield to heels. Keep this in mind when approaching other trail users. On the Holmes County Trail, buggies & horseback riders yield to all other users while cyclists yield to hikers and walkers. Facilities – Trail restrooms are available at trailheads in Holmesville, Millersburg, and Killbuck. The Millersburg Depot/Hipp Station is located adjacent to the Trail on the corner of Clinton and Grants Streets in Millersburg. The depot serves as a trail and railroad

information center as well. Picnic areas are located at the Millersburg Depot/Hipp Station and at the end of the trail in Killbuck. A horse watering trough is located on the west side of the trail adjacent to the Millersburg Depot/Hipp Station. Safety on the Trail – It is every trail user’s responsibility and right to ensure their own safety and expect safe practice from other trail users. Exercise caution at all times, follow guidelines and rules of the trails. Preventing accidents or injuries is the first step; acting responsibly if something does happen is the second. Always think clearly. Trail Etiquette – Trail etiquette can be described as the polite way to use trails. It outlines guidelines for the many users that ride, walk, hike, bike, or roller blade the trail. If you have never considered trail etiquette to be one of the more important aspects of trail use, you may want to reconsider. Trail etiquette should be a major part of any trail user’s experience. If trail users conduct themselves in an appropriate manner, respect the environment and the other users, the trail experience will only get better. Keep safety and etiquette in mind when you are participating in trail use, this way the trail in Holmes County will stay in good condition and the privilege will remain accessible for everyone. Pets – Pets are permitted on the trail. Because pets have been known to run in front of a cyclist while on an extended leash we ask pet owners to keep pets on a maximum 5-foot leash at all times to prevent accidents; they should never be left unattended. Extreme care should be taken to avoid conflicts between dogs and horses.

More Information – The Holmes County Planning Commission

is responsible for encouraging the orderly and responsible development of the county. The Planning Commission also works closely with the Holmes County Economic Development Council. Our county prides itself on having a pro-business, pro-growth strategy, all while ensuring development occurs in an orderly manner. Tourism is also a major industry and provides a considerable source of tax revenue for the county. Evidence of the strong economic climate in Holmes County is demonstrated by examining the statewide unemployment rates showing Holmes County to be consistently one of the lowest communities in the State at 3.3 percent (as of August 2016), and also, the eighth-fastest population growth rate in the state. Obviously, there are multiple factors driving the economy in Holmes County, but there remains a significant desire to preserve the rural character so visitors will continue to return. Issues such as the proliferation of subdivisions, destruction of farmland and rising real-estate taxes will come into play in the near future.

Such funds are used to complete needed public infrastructure upgrades and expansions designed to improve our roadways and increase public access to sewer and water services.

Infrastructure Will Be Key To Holmes Economic Success

Economic development and infrastructure go handin-hand, especially in Holmes County, where development is limited by infrastructure.That’s according to Holmes County Economic Development Council Executive Director Mark Leininger, who recently welcomed a group of local leaders and business representatives to the annual meeting of the council.To those, he said, the ability to be successful hinges on the ability to improve the infrastructure. It’s a theory that recently became a reality when local, state and federal funding totaling nearly $450,000 was combined to improve roadways in Walnut Creek Township. The project was prompted by the construction of a new 300,000-square-foot manufacturing facility along County Road 140, between Walnut Creek and Sugarcreek, by ProVia. The $10 million project supports relocation of Heritage Stone, purchased by ProVia in 2011, to Holmes County from Muskingum County, according to a prior agreement with the Holmes County commissioners.The purpose of the road project is to improve local transportation infrastructure to safely accommodate increased heavy truck traffic and other local traffic, according to Leininger, who said ProVia has made a significant contribution to the infrastructure by footing the $600,000 bill to extend more than a mile the public sewer lines to the new building. Expansion of the facility means increased heavy truck traffic on County Road 140 and Township Road 420, which previously were traveled by automobiles, farm equipment, bicycles and horse-drawn buggies. Keynote speaker at the annual breakfast meeting was Congressman Bob Gibbs, a Lakeville Republican, who currently is seeking his fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives. “The entrepreneurial spirit is great in Holmes County,” Gibbs said, noting that it is bolstered locally by a healthy banking structure, which

goes hand-in-hand with business success. He spoke largely about the federal budgeting process -- distinguishing between what is mandatory and what is discretionary spending. “Because revenues are not increasing at the same rate (as spending), it makes less money available for discretionary spending,” said Gibbs, noting with discretionary spending is funding for defense and infrastructure. With mandatory spending projected to flatline, with the exception of health care, which is on the rise, he said, available funds for discretionary spending will be less. Consequently, Gibbs said, “Mandatory spending must be addressed. That’s really what drives the problem.” Tax reform is necessary if companies in the United States are to compete in a global market, he said, noting the regulatory side “gets in the way of job growth.” Gibbs said he supports “common sense: reforms at the federal level.With more available funding, he said, the federal government can continue to build on the infrastructure initiatives already in place. Efforts have been made to improve ground, rail and water transportation, all critical in the effort to move products and be competitive in the world market, he said, noting the United States has started to fall behind other countries in the area of infrastructure. To move forward, he said, the country needs to address a growing debt, which will lead to a debt crisis and “will make the 1930s look like child’s play,” said Gibbs, adding the United States can get on the right track by instituting the right policies. Questioned by Holmes County Engineer Chris Young about a longterm funding solution to make infrastructure sustainable for the future, Gibbs said he doesn’t think anyone in the legislature is looking at it, although he admits the gas tax is no longer a sustainable option, thanks to the advent of more fuel-efficient vehicles. One solution, he said, could be hinged on miles driven, but “I don’t think society is ready to go there because of the fear of Big Brother,” said Gibbs, adding, “It has to be a national discussion.” It’s a discussion that can only happen if the nation is able to carve its way out of a deep economic hole, freeing up funding for infrastructure and national defense, both the responsibility of government. “We need to create an environment where American people can chase their dreams. When the economy is doing well, the environment is enhanced. When it is not doing well, the environment suffers,” he said. “We have to put more money into the military and national defense. We also have to address the infrastructure.”

Leadership Holmes County Prepares Next Generation of Leaders Contact Information - 6 W. Jackson St., Suite A, Millersburg;

(330) 674-3975, www.holmescountychamber.com (click on the Leadership link). More Information - In Holmes County, leadership and learning go hand-in-hand. In its fifteenth year, Leadership Holmes County was designed to develop leadership skills in a wide range of individuals throughout the county. The program also seeks to increase the number of leaders in business, the community and government, while educating them about Holmes County’s resources, challenges and opportunities. “We’re never too old to learn and sort out new ideas. You’re always involved in leadership situations, whether you’re 5 or 95,” said Leah Miller, who facilitates Leadership Holmes County. Areas of Concentration – In addition to studying “The Leadership Challenge” by James Kouzes and Barry Posner, and other leadership resources, the class concentrates on one area of Holmes County each month: • Culture, History and Geography * Local County Government • Non-Profit and Education • Medical Services • Entrepreneurship • Manufacturing • Tourism • Agriculture

Class Selection and Procedures - Each year, a class of 15 to 25

people is selected from the group of countywide applicants. Classes run from September to May and meet once a month. The class spends each morning studying Kouzes and Posner’s text, other leadership publications and participating in group discussion. In the afternoon, they travel throughout the county visiting leaders where they work. Miller hopes the leadership students use the opportunity to really sit down, talk to the key players and discuss leadership philosophy and involvement in the community.

“We want to heighten awareness. There are opportunities in our county, and we have some challenges out there that need someone to step up to the plate and not just people in business or in public positions,” Miller said. The program also has the benefit of preparing a leadership base for Holmes County to meet the demands of the various boards in the community. Leadership Holmes County is sponsored by the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau.

All the buildings in the West Holmes School District have been fitted with Wi-Fi and are up and running, according to technology coordinator Dave Rhodes. “Wifi is up and operating in all buildings,” Rhoades said. “They are all on the same system now with the West Holmes Middle School and High School. So, as a district, we now manage and control our own Wifi system. Everything’s the same. “We now have 625 Chrome books in service and being used,” he continued. “That includes an extra computer lab in Millersburg and an extra computer lab in Killbuck. There will be a mobile lab with 20 of those at the high school. They should be in place by next Monday. We currently have 300 more Chrome books coming in, that will replace the virtual labs in all buildings, including the computer lab at Nashville.” Rhoades reported that the new books should be in place before Thanksgiving 2016.

“THAT SHOULD PUT US IN TIME FOR TESTING WHICH STARTS AFTER THANKSGIVING,” HE ADDED.

The University of Akron is an Equal Education and Employment Institution WO-10503919

Rhoades also reported that new security cameras are in place at all elementary buildings, at the entrance to each building. “We received $121,000 for an E-rate Grant to help considerably with the costs, putting wireless in all the buildings,” Sterling said. “We never had wireless in the elementary buildings before, and the platform that we went to is something we can manage ourselves, and we won’t have to pay an outside vendor to take care of it. Also, the security cameras he talked about, we received a $35,000 grant for those. “We didn’t have anything to record who is coming into the building, and now we can go back and check that,” the superintendent continued. “That was a safety grant issued by the state of Ohio. That’s a total of $156,000 in grants we received for those projects. That helped us considerably.”

Although it is located in Holmes County, the Holmesville Elementary School is part of the Southeast Local School District of Wayne County. The school serves students living in Prairie Township and a small area close to Fredericksburg. Amish children make up about 10 percent of the student body.  Following their sixth-grade year, students from Holmesville go to John R. Lea Middle School and then to Waynedale High School, both of

which are located just southeast of Apple Creek, along with district offices. Another opportunity for students leaving 6th grade from Holmesville would be to attend one of the 7/8 grade classes located at Fredericksburg Elementary or Mt. Eaton Elementary, for those who do not want to attend the junior high. The Southeast Local School District serves approximately 1,450 students.  HOLMESVILLE ELEMENTARY

Agencies Serving Holmes County

Government

State Representative Commends Holmes County Chamber and Other County Agencies By: Christine L. Pratt Dix Communications

State Rep. Dave Hall said it's a great feeling to be able to tell the governor of the great state of Ohio that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to Holmes County accomplishing a tough task no one thought it would be able to do. "You have things like Kerry (Taylor) and his team, when they told him this couldn't be done," Hall said to the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday afternoon in the Baker Building at the new Holmes County Fairgrounds at Harvest Ridge.

"THEY DID IT THE HOLMES COUNTY WAY," HALL SAID. "IT WAS A DELIGHT TO GO TO THE GOVERNOR AND SAY, 'THEY'LL GET IT DONE.' THEY DID IT AS A COMMUNITY, AS A COUNTY. JOB WELL DONE. "As this county grows, there's going to be change, more challenges, and I look among you and your leadership, and I know full well you will address these changes and challenges the Holmes County way. That's bringing everyone together and asking how can I help," he continued. "It's the uniqueness of this county that says a lot for us. It's been my privilege to be able to brag about that as a legislator. Whenever they said Holmes County couldn't do something, you came through and finished the project. " Hall, whose career in Columbus will come to a close at the end of the year due to term limits, delivered possibly his farewell address to the Holmes County Chamber. "After 21 years, I have been starting to reminisce, driving by places and thinking, 'I remember when this was that.' I remember where the Education Foundation was, and where it is at now. What a difference. Where we've come in this county, what's changed. And change is often difficult for people," Hall said. "I remember when I was the Parks and Recreation director in the county and we started discussions about Rails to Trails. They left one tree up for me. I remember one individual saying, 'Why do we need a trail when Holmes County is all trails.' But now you drive by and see license plates from people from all over the United States. You see grandparents walking their grandchildren, promoting healthy lifestyles." Hall says he hopes all the agencies in the county will continue to

work together the way they have done so successfully during his time in office. "Continue to be able to look beyond things, and say, 'let's partner, and help this agency out'," Hall said. "Let's help the community. How can I help further your goal. How can I help with a new project. How do I help different groups out there take the next step. A lot of times it's a board member, but often it's a helping hand. I'm finishing up a career that, if I helped a little bit, I've been blessed to be able to do that. Now, I get to go home. Great work, everyone. I've never been more proud of Holmes County for what you've done, your vision, and your ability to look past those challenges. "I expect a lot of great things over the next few years, and there is a great group of young people getting involved," he said. "You are doing a great job of getting the next generation involved." Hall said he hopes the people of the county will support the effort of engineer Chris Young, who is proposing a one-quarter percent sales tax to be voted on in November. "I appreciate Republican Chairman Rob Hovis speeding the process along after the unfortunate passing of Judge Jane Irving, finding three qualified candidates," Hall said. "They have sent those three candidates to the Ohio Supreme Court. I expect there should be a decision quickly; within the next week or two. Thank you for getting the ball rolling." Hall also said he was disappointed in his inability to pass legislation regarding high-speed tractors hauling trailers with people. "We have issues there, and if we don't address this, we're going to be a national issue," he said. "We're dealing with these tractors hauling people in the back, and it's just a matter of time. I tried, but it got thrown out in the senate." He also spoke of the Hiland High School intersection project, and ODOT, and its reliance on statistics. "We shouldn't wait for the next accident, we should work to avoid it," he said. Hall thanked everyone for the opportunity to serve. "It's been a great ride." "We appreciate all your years of service," Chamber of Commerce President Lee Miller said.

Pomerene Hospital Contact Information - 981 Wooster Rd., Millersburg; (330)

674-1015, www.pomerenehospital.org, www.facebook.com/ PomereneHospital CEO Administrator - Tony Snyder Number of Beds - 55 Number of Staff- Over 30 active medical staff physicians, 300 employees plus 80 volunteers Services - Ambulatory Care, Cardiology Services, Community Outreach, Dietetic Nutrition Counseling Program, a Wide Variety of Services for the Amish, Emergency Care, Express Care, Family Care, Laboratory, Intensive Care Nursing, Maternity/OB, Midwifery Services, Medical/Surgical Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Orthopedic Surgery, Physical Therapy, Radiology, Rehabilitative Services, Respiratory Care, Sleep Lab, Social Services, Speech Therapy, Surgical Services, Volunteer Program, Fitness and Wellness Center. CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY’S HEALTH The Joel Pomerene Hospital Company was established in 1919 as a not-for-profit corporation with the goal of building a hospital in Holmes County. The original facility started with a six bed women’s ward, a three bed men’s ward, six private rooms, a three bed OB ward and a nursery with 5 cribs. There were 10 physicians on staff. Today we have more than 300 employees, 80 physicians, 3 floors and more than 30 departments. Pomerene is one of the largest employers in Holmes County and serves the greater Holmes County area with some patients residing in contiguous counties. Pomerene Hospital’s mission is “Caring for our community’s health.” POMERENE HOSPITAL RECEIVES SEVERAL NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED AWARDS IN 2016 2016 was a great year for Pomerene. On February 28th, Pomerene was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health AnalyticsTM, a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study identifies hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on a national balanced scorecard measuring overall organizational performance across 11 key analytic measures including patient care, operational efficiency, and financial stability. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. “What makes this award truly meaningful to not only us, but to our community, is that hospitals do not apply or pay to be included in the

study,” stated Tony Snyder, CEO of Pomerene Hospital. “The study uses independent public data that includes nearly 3,000 hospitals across the country. Of those 3,000 hospitals, we finished in the Top 100. We have always been confident in the high quality care we provide, but to see it recognized through this study confirms to our employees, physicians and volunteers that their hard work and dedication has truly made a positive impact in the lives of patients who have, and will enter our doors.” Then in May, Pomerene was named in the top 100 of rural and community hospitals on iVantage’s Hospital Strength INDEX®. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive rating of rural and Critical Access Hospitals. The results recognize that the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America. In conjunction with this award, the National Rural Health Association (NRHA) announced Pomerene as one of the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the nation. The determining factors for the top 20 rural community hospitals were based on nine indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, population risk, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives and financial stability. “There are over 2,000 rural hospitals in the United States,” stated Snyder. “To be recognized in the top 1% of rural hospitals nationwide is an immense honor. We always strive to provide our community with nothing but the best, high-quality care, and we have an amazing group of people who are committed to making Pomerene strong in all areas of healthcare.” In addition to the awards Pomerene has recently received, the hospital has been expanding its services. In 2016, Pomerene introduced Cardiac Rehab services at its medical fitness facility, Pomerene Kinetics. Just recently, the facility also added in Physical Therapy services. In April, Pomerene announced that, in partnership with Radiology Associates of Canton, they would be offering Interventional Radiology services, and in May, Pomerene expanded its family care practice and introduced Dr. DJ McFadden and Dr. Hannah Miedel to the Pomerene Family Care group. In October of 2016, Pomerene also welcomed a new gastroenterologist. As always, the hospital offers community outreach programs serving as a medical resource of information on health topics important to our community. For more information regarding the community outreach events, please call 330-674-1584, ext. 1764 or visit Pomerene Hospital’s website, Facebook page.
