The popular longtime Westfield/Mayville Rotary Club's annual auction will be Saturday, May 11.
This year the auction will be held in the middle of the village of Westfield in Eason Hall, 23 Elm St. In addition to Elm Street parking, just up the street is a large lot.
Food service and silent auction begin at 5 p.m. A tasty dinner of chicken barbecue with potato salad, coleslaw, rolls and dessert, plus beverages will be served until 7 p.m.
One item to be auctioned off at the Westfield/Mayville Rotary Club’s May 11 auction is a replica of a long-ago wooden ship. This one is 2 feet high (which includes a hard metal stand) and 8 1/2 inches wide (sail edge to sail edge). The public also is invited to donate items for auctioning.
From 6-9 p.m., auctioneer David Brown will conduct the live auction, for which there will be many valuable items. During intervals, drawings for 40 to 50 bottles of wine, a 50/50 giveaway and a special $500 prize will be held. It is noted that the $500 winner must be present.
Admission to the event is $10.
Anyone who would like to contribute items for the auction, whether businesses or private citizens, should contact Tom Berkhouse, auction chairman, on or before May 1 by calling 326-4507, or any Rotarian. Items for the auction must have a value of $50 or more; for the silent auction, under $50.
Tickets for the evening may be obtained by calling Harry Barton at 326-4229, in Westfield; Ann Weidman, 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.
