We are accepting items such as: farm equipment, large & small; outdoor power equipment; vehicles; garden equipment; ATV’s; sporting, hunting, playground, and exercise equipment,; decorative landscaping items; handguns, rifles, & shotguns; also household items with a minimum value of $50, i.e. prints, silver trays, candelabras, lamps, china, crystal, flatware, furniture, appliances, rare and out-of-print books, jewelry, antiques, etc. There will be an indoor SILENT AUCTION for the smaller items.

We have a professional auctioneer secured for this event. This is an AUCTION—NOT a yard sale! We are accepting used items, but please donate ONLY items that are safe, usable, and in good condition.

We would like to request that EVERY member contribute at least one item for the auction if at all possible.
