As you read this, final preparations for our Church Auction on Saturday, May 7 (5 to 9 pm) are underway. The catalog of events, services, gift certificates and collectibles is complete. Plans for food, music, lively conversation and both silent and live auctions will both entertain you and entice you to bid generously – bid early and often as they used to say about voting in Chicago. Join us. Gate tickets are just $5.
