The Silent Auction is full of wonderful items donated by generous members of the community. Get a taste of what will be available by reading this recent note from the Grange:
More beautiful donations have come in for the silent auction! Two exquisite paintings from Gordon Mcbride, a spectacular framed photograph by Ben Brewster, a lap size Amish quilt, hand quilted given by Betsy Tisdale, and a wonderful book, “A simpler Way of Life: Old farmhouses of NY and New England” given by Donna Sonnett! The latter also features 8 photos and info about the Orren Reynolds house on Walker Rd!
More is coming daily, including some children’s books by Steven Kellogg. We are so thrilled with the special gifts, and know the winning bidders are going to be delighted! (Whallonsburg Grange Facebook)
