Jan 20 Auction Kick-off Meeting

The Kick-Off Meeting for the 2019 Auction will be on January 20 at noon in the library.  If you are interested in being a part of this year’s fundraiser, grab a cup of coffee after the 11:30 service and come learn more about ways you could help.  Co-chairs Ilene Steele and Linda Peterson will describe the various roles needed to make the evening a success!  Do you have a fun loving spirit and creativity to get members excited about this event?  Like to set up a bar to quench the thirst of avid bidders?  Is food your specialty?  Are raffle baskets something you’ve always wanted to put together?  Or do you love planning an evening of fun and food for our FUTURE auction participants (AKA the children of our church).  Whatever your interests, we’d love to have you attend this initial meeting!  Hope to see you on the 20th.  (Feel free to contact Ilene and Linda with any questions!)
