Auction Ideas

Our Services Auction is focusing on the Warmth of Community. What makes YOU feel warm and cozy during the winter? It’s possible (probable?) that what makes you feel warm and cozy is exactly what someone else would like to do with you.

Share a family tradition (sledding at Odell?, Caroling? Top secret family recipe?)

Share a skill (Computer work, Organizing, Muscle)

Share an event (Bowling? Paintball? Opera?)
