Our church auction will be a luncheon to be held after Fellowship. The theme is Mardi Gras. Be thinking about items you would like to donate, such as hand made jewelry, craft items, baked goods, homemade jams or jellies, a dinner you would prepare for 8 to 10 people, gift baskets, plants, etc. This is not a garage sale, so use this test on the item—would I buy this at an auction? Original art is lovely and may sell very well, however, remember artwork is very personal and not all art appeals to everyone. Items that do not sell can either be returned to the donor or given to charity. Donations will be collected starting the last week in January, look for more information on where and when in the Weekly Update. The auction is not only fun but also serves as a major fund raiser for the General Fund. Questions may be directed to either Sue Lydic or Jennifer Griffin.
