*****  Show Donations for Silent Auction and Door Prizes  *****

At the February Meeting we will have a container for donations that will be used in the Show as items to be auctioned off in the Silent Auction, or for use as Door Prizes. As we usually auction off about 5 items every 1/2 hr, we will need approximately 150 items to cover the weekend. Door Prizes are given out every hour, so we will need approximately 15 items for this. If your donation requires identifying, please attach a tag stating what it is and approximate value. Does not necessarily need to be rock related. If you work with wood, glass, clay, leather, feathers, metal, beads, chainmaille- we would love to have something from you. A Business Card can be included with the items. It takes all of our Members to make this Show a success. Thanks.
