Silent Auction Donations
Posted Tuesday, March 16, 2010 12:18 AM

As one way to raise funds to offset reunion expences we have decided to do a silent auction at the reunion. 

We are looking at having 10 - 12 baskets for classmates to bid on.  If you, or someone you know, could donate to the baskets it would be greatly appreciated.  Who do you have connections with that could donate???  If you are donating from a business connection we would be glad to include a business card or information in the basket. 

Please reply to this forum or email Cindy (Bartlett) Baker at HeavenlyLights@satx.rr.com if you will be able to donate.  Donations can be made now thru June 30th.
