Silent Auction Update

   The annual Holiday Party, Business Meeting and Silent Auction will be at 6:00pm on December 10 at the Senior Center MPR.

   The auction item donations so far have been very generous but there are still a few top-end categories that are lacking. If you are the proud owner of a Vacation Home or Pro Sports Tickets, please consider adding those gifts to our list of items.

    All of the donated items will require this form listing donor contact, info, a description of the proposed donation and the value of the item. Completed donation forms are due by November 11. 

   After the deadline, and in an effort to keep raffle items at an acceptable standard and avoid duplications, the selection committee will notify approved donors of their acceptance by November 18

   Donors will receive additional information about the auction and specific details regarding tax-deduction requirements after the donation period closes.

   The actual delivery date for selected items will be during the week of December 5.
