Summer Fair Silent Auction Appeal


Once again, we are planning our Summer Fair featuring the popular Silent Auction. The fair will be held on Saturday, July 23, during Pittsfield 's Old Home Day. We are looking for auction items that will attract a summer crowd.

Perhaps you have an appealing item, a fine craft, sports equipment, or a piece of art that you could donate. Tickets for a special event or entertainment venue are a big draw.

Gift certificates for services have great appeal. How about donating a guided fishing trip on your boat; a llama trek to the top of Mt. Major for a picnic; kayaking for two with an expert guide (you)? Perhaps you could donate your services to plan (or plant) a flower border or your expertise to lay a patio. You get the idea—be creative. Offer your special talent or skill. We can help to write up an attractive gift certificate.

Our auction committee is ready and waiting to add your contribution to the auction table. See Marylee Johnson, Mary Ellen Siudut, or Carole Brown for information or advice.
