UUCT Spring Auction! April 9, 2017

If you have not marked you calendar’s as yet, please do so now for the afternoon of Sunday, April 9, 2017, as the Church’s annual auction event.  You need to be there!  The event is a BIG raiser – of money (for the church) and of spirits (for everyone involved).  The auction will start in the Education Building (also known as the Multi-Purpose Building to some) soon after the end of Sunday service.  Lunch will be available.  For just $5.00 you can purchase a nutritious bag lunch, loaded with enough good food stuff to power you through the high-energy auction activities.

Dinners, multiple course meals, and much sought after services are among some of the items available in this year’s auction catalogue.  If you snooze you will lose out on an opportunity to purchase a seat at some of these fun events or buy some of these extraordinary helpful items.

If you would like to be a part of the auction itself, it is not too late to volunteer to be an auction helper.  We still need people to help check people in, make lunches, record data, and check people out.  Just contact us at .  The same goes for new auction items.  If you have something you would like to include in the auction catalogue, send your information to the same contact site just mentioned.
