another hard job - handled successfully

Pastor Betty Jo sampling the desert table - looks like she's enjoying it!

Walkerton's mail lady Florence Cook(right) and her daughter Mary Kay (left) helped the auctioneer
by bringing all auction items into view for each bidding session and
 delivering them to the buyers table after the bid was acknowledged - it was a hard job considering the hundreds of items
they moved smoothly through their lines during the night.

Auctioneer Shawn Smith receiving directions from Mary Kay during the auction - so many items to keep track of and the prices
along with who donated them - again we say thanks for the donations!  The audience was well informed on each item they were bidding on.

The audience again enjoying the bidding process during the auction!

Clean up time - tear down all the tables and chairs and clean the firehouse before going home after the auction!

Looks like the clean up crew did a great job - thanks to all the volunteers for your time and energy!
