    December is our fund raising month; we will be having a Silent Auction of all of the items that the members bring in.  There are always many good buys for the wise shopper. The high-lite of the day will be the "noisey auction" where you will have a chance to bid on items donated by local merchants.  It's always a lot of fun.
