Auction was a Success!!!

We would like to thank all members who contributed items to the Take it To Go Auction.  The early results show the auction and sale was a success.

Lots of hard work was done by many individuals before and on auction day.  Without the help of so many, a successful auction would not have been possible.

Our refreshment table was well stocked and happy people spend more money!!

Also,  a  huge thanks to the bidders and the purchasers of items.  A full recap will be done at the June Meeting.
