The popular Westfield-Mayville Rotary Club's annual auction will soon be here, so save the date of Saturday, May 11 and get ready to find that long sought-after "special something."
This year the auction will be held in Eason Hall, 23 Elm St., Westfield. In addition to Elm Street parking, there is more just up the street in a large lot.
Food service and the silent auction begin at 5 p.m. A dinner of barbecued chicken with potato salad, coleslaw, rolls and dessert, plus beverages will be served until 7 p.m.
From 6 to 9 p.m., auctioneer David Brown will conduct the live auction where there will be many valuable items. During intervals, will be a wine raffle of 40 to 50 bottles of wine, a 50/50 raffle, and a special $500 prize will be held. The $500 winner must be present.
Rotarians are also pleased to proclaim that all of this - food, auction, prizes, seeing old friends - is available for the price of a $10 ticket. Anyone who would like to contribute items for the auction, whether businesses or private citizens, should contact Auction Chairman Tom Berkhouse on or before Wednesday, May 1 by calling 326-4507, or any Rotarian. The value of live auction items is usually $50 and up and silent items under $50, but can vary.
Tickets for the evening may be obtained by calling Harry Barton at 326-4229 in Westfield, Ann Weidman at 753-2414 in Mayville or any Rotarian, including any additional committee members Cindy Harper, Dan Smith, Dave Travis, Jim Wakeman, Sue Hammond, Doug Richmond, Pete Bills, Crystal Schrantz or John Hammels.
