Silent Auction is Up and Running

Twas a month before Christmas and all through the museum
the baskets were waiting – you just gotta see ’em.

The baskets were wrapped by staffers with care
in hopes that the bidders soon would be there.

The Board had been busy, the volunteers too
getting the baskets all ready for you.

Please come in and see them, they’re all though the hall,
The party is Saturday – come one and come all.

Yes indeed – the baskets are ready for bidding. Stop in any time this week – we are open 10-5. The official Open House is Saturday 1-4. We’ll have goodies to eat, goodies to buy and the bidding will end on the 110 baskets.
There really is something for everyone – from bow hunters to scrap bookers. There is a 6 x 12 ft area rug, a decorated Christmas tree, a Hurdy Gurdy, fresh baked goodies, quilts, works of art, office supplies, picnics, ice fishing events and toys. There are gift certificates for oil changes, dinners, movies, lodging, hair cuts, furnace inspections and more. We hope you’ll stop in and see us.

All proceeds benefit the Pope County Museum.
