ANNUAL SILENT AUCTION AT SPIRIT OF LIFE SUNDAY APRIL 24 Spirit of Life will be holding our annual Silent Auction on Sunday, April 24th, following our service. For those of you unfamiliar with silent service auctions, this is how they work: a person, couple, or group of people offer a service for others to bid upon; the bid is done silently by those in attendance going from station to station and writing down bids for a particular service. At the end of the bidding time, the person with the last recorded bid wins the service and pays Spirit of Light. I am defining “service” broadly. It may mean providing babysitting, house cleaning, weeding the garden, minor house repairs, editing, massages, or washing windows; it may also take other forms, such as providing freshly baked bread, homemade cookies or it may even mean preparing and serving a delicious meal for a small group; it could also be a weekend at a cabin, boat rides, or having a pencil portrait done. Whatever you believe others would appreciate will qualify. For some services, you might want to specify a minimum bid; for example, for a gourmet meal for six, the service provider might want to set a minimum bid of $25 for each of the six people. Our auction will work only with a broad assortment of services and lots of bidders. So, we are asking you to do two things: 1) consider a service you might auction and 2) invite guests to attend our auction. I will be distributing in early April via e-mail a form for you to indicate what you will offering. This year we are asking that those who win a bid follow up with the person offering the auction item.
We will enjoy a potluck as we bid on auction items. Angie Stevens will be contacting you closer to the time of the Auction for contributions.
