Be sure to include any time/date restrictions and minimum bid for each item. Service items might include instruction in a skill (Excel, dancing, Quickbooks, knitting, jam making, etc.) or performing a task (airport rides, pet sitting, organizing, handyman services, etc.) performing, or cooking dinners, desserts, whatever to be delivered or dinner at your home.
Dinner Schedule and Menu:
6:00 PM – 6:50 PM: Hors d’oervres and beverages - chance to view raffle prizes and bid on silent auction items. Please plan to pay for silent auction items after the dinner.
7:00-8:30 PM. Dinner

Silent or live auction winners be prepared to pay for your item after dinner.
Volunteers Needed: We still need a couple of volunteers to help with checking in guests and sale of raffle tickets. After dinner, we can use a few folks to do a rough cleanup and get all food debris down to the garbage cans. On Tuesday Terry and Frank could really use an extra person or two to help with final cleanup. Come on guys, this is a gender-neutral opportunity!
nobody has to feel that they have given away their item for next to nothing.
In later bulletins we will be outlining the tasks that need to be done and seeking members to join the committee. By dividing up the work no task needs be large. Members Terry Hunt and Carol Conway are co-chairs; Terry will be procuring the crab and Carol will be planning the dinner and making the pasta sauce and pasta as last year.
