 News to Use for the April  8 Auction

The April auction is coming upon us soon and I want you to start thinking Spring,
gardening, pastels, picnics, patriotic, grilling, children, coffee, chocolate, stuffed toys, pin
cushions, aprons, pot holders, home-made cards, bakery, flowers and on and on. This
should give you some ideas for items to offer.

I also want to walk you through the evening so you’ll have some idea of what’s going to
happen. First, when you come in the door, there will be two members sitting at a table
to register you. They will have you sign your name and assign you a paddle number for
bidding. If you  want to donate an item you’ll make your way to the front table to hand in your auction item. This should have a 3 x 5 card attached with four things written on it. 1. A description. 2. An
opening bid . 3. The value of the item . 4. Your name.

During the auction there will be two clerks keeping track of the bidding. They’ll write
down how much the winning offer was and which number made it. At the end of the
auction, the clerks will be the cashiers and will take your money. Checks are most
appreciated, cash is great ( but I don’t always know how much I’ll spend). We don’t
have the capability to take credit or debit cards
Come one and all. Bring guests- lots of them. Bring your checkbooks. The profits of
this auction will go into the treasury for future programs. So it will be a win/win for
everyone. You’ll get a great auction item and programs at our meetings. Get your
guests to join the Guild too.
