We have two big events coming up in August. Our Crafts, Supplies and Book Sale takes place on August 2 and 3 from 9 to 2.
Our Annual Silent Auction, Cooking Supplies and Book Sale will be held August 17 and 18. I recently photographed some of the wonderful items donated for the Silent Auction. It runs from 10 to 1 both days. Bidding stops at 1 p.m. and then you see what you’ve won!
Are you a Civil War buff? There is a beautiful plate and a dvd you might bid on. Or are you more interested in having a spot of tea? Nora King donated a Starbucks Tea Set and Wanda Leatherwood from Nantahala Regional Library brought in a lovely Coach purse. Local shop Blue Moon Elise has donated a pretty package of lotions for you or someone you love.
