Help the Silent Auction December 5 & 6

This has been an unusual time in our lives. Some of us have actually had time to clean out those attics and storage spaces. With that in mind, please consider donating NEW items to the Silent Auction events. We will help you recycle those unused Christmas gifts and give them new life. Please, please, we can only use NEW ITEMS or ANTIQUE items.

The SILENT AUCTION committee welcomes new items of just about any category. There is almost always a theme basket in the works that it will fit into. The basket committee supplies items for the bingos, and other events throughout the year including the Fall Festival. If you have items you would like to donate, please contact Carolyn Marker at 612-270-0451 or send an email to cmarker243@aol.com.
