This year’s Talent & Craft Auction is scheduled for Sunday, October 23rd. The doors open for browsing at 5:30 p. m. and the Auction begins at 6 p. m. For those of you who are new members, this is when we let our talents shine and have lots of fun doing it. It may be that you have hobbies that are very creative and you can produce something magnificent in that way. Or, maybe you’d like to offer your time by babysitting, raking leaves or other fall yard work, or shoveling snow for someone who cannot do this anymore, or helping someone paint a room in their house, etc. Gardeners can produce beautiful flowers and plants, or bakers can produce some goodies, or cooks can prepare a few meals for a shut-in. Or holiday decorating, hand stitched item, etc. Bring donations in that morning. Every one of us has a skill of some sort that can be auctioned off. If you haven’t started yet, now is the time to get your thinking caps on and come up with something that will reap a benefit for WELCA’s treasury. Apple dumplings will be served at the auction and usually leftovers are sold at the end of the auction. Any questions call Sue at 474-6558.
