Great Time and Goals Achieved at the Drive It Yourself Tour

Do you love living in Geauga County?

I know I do. I have lived here my entire life and can’t really imagine living anywhere else. The people here are so kind and welcoming. You can’t beat the scenery and the changing of the seasons.

Geauga County Tourism’s Annual Spring Drive It Yourself Tour is the perfect way to experience Geauga County. You start out with a list of 25 businesses, the specials they are offering for this event, and a map. We spent Friday night mapping out the route we would take to try to hit all 25 businesses in a 5 hour time period. We attempted this last year and were only able to get to 17 businesses.

So here is the list of all of the businesses that we went to in order:

The Real Deal String Band

We met up with the other participants and a few members of the Geauga News Team at the finale at the Middlefield Market. The Real Deal String Band played live music for all of the participants to enjoy. Several tables were set up for silent auction items and Chinese auction items. There were a lot of really great donations from all of the businesses that were involved in the tour. We bought $10 worth of raffle tickets and ended up winning a quart of maple syrup from the Burton Log Cabin, which is worth more than the $10 we spent, and it was exactly what I wanted!

Three prize baskets were loaded with goodies and gift certificates for the three big winners. 1st prize, a $660 value, was won by Rosanne Williamson of Middlefield; 2nd prize, a $400 value, was won by Carol Wolf of Concord; and 3rd prize, a $350 value, was won by Karen Fuller of Newbury.
