An unexpected trio of volunteers has stepped up to help organize the farmer’s market in Genoa.

Genoa High School agricultural teacher Dave Stacklin along with students Rachel Weber and Madison Sheahan have offered to run the farmer’s market on behalf of the village this year.

Jeff Carpenter, treasurer of the Lake Local School District, describes a recent annual meeting of Ohio School Business Officials in Columbus as a “tale of woe.”
