MANSFIELD – The Mansfield Noon Optimist Club’s annual Mid-Ohio Home Show is back after a one-year absence.

Because of the pandemic, the event was canceled in March 2020 just hours before it was scheduled to open, club president Kevin Zehe said.

The home show will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with plenty of businesses on hand to offer residents home improvement services and more at the Richland County Fairgrounds.

Members of the home show committee said the pandemic curtailed a lot of the programs for youth the club normally sponsored in 2020, but they are hoping for a great turnout this year at the show.

Net proceeds go to community youth, said Tom Stortz, a committee member of the Mansfield Noon Optimist Club. He estimated there will be about 70 exhibitors in two buildings at the fairgrounds. Anyone still wanting to setup a booth may contact the Optimists at midohiohomeshow.com.
