Wreath Auction Extended!

Posted By on December 12, 2013

The 4th Annual Wreath Silent Auction has been extended!  The auction will now be moving to the Opera House on Sunday, December 15th so the public has another chance to view the 13 beautiful wreaths and decorations that have been donated.  The auction will end at 2pm, right after the old time movies.  The winners who are present can take their wreaths home with them that day and all other winning bidders will be contacted on Sunday evening or Monday.  This is our only fundraiser for the year and we use all profits from it for special projects such as our summer reading programs, the purchase of the DVD cleaning machine, our subscription to Nebraska Overdrive and matching funds for grants. Here are a few pictures of the wreaths!
