Dec 10 Auction Update

From: Michelle Place
Sent: Thursday, December 1, 2011 5:24 PM

Dear Class,

We have had a few more forms for auction items turned in and have heard several rumblings of potential items. Anything you could send me Friday would be great so that I could organize them prior to leaving town for 8 days. After Friday, you will need to contact Pam Sherman.

Here is what we have so far:

Live Auction Items:
A Chili & Blues Party,
Super Bowl Party, Witching for Unmarked Graves in the Perryman Cemetery followed by rooftop beverages,
another Gourmet Dinner for 24 people,
Dinner for 4 at Juniper’s,
an Outdoor Movie Night,
A week in a Chicago apartment

Silent Auction Items:
2 handmade somethings from Beverly North, 1 Christmas quilt & 1 other quilt, 12 months of PC maintenance, 2 tickets to Fiddler on the Roof, a dog bed & toys. Please bring your silent auction items the night of the event but having the form ahead of time would be helpful.

If you are unable to attend the party on Saturday, Dec 10, consider finding someone to bid for you. Also, cash contributions are certainly accepted. Invoices will be produced and distributed to bidders.

Again, Friday is my deadline and after that, any auction forms need to go to Pam Sherman. I’ll be thinking of the party and praying for its success while I am out of town. Remember that all proceeds go to missions inside the church and in our community.

Maranatha Auction

Our Annual Christmas Party and auction are quickly approaching.   If you have put this creative and organizational task off, please take some time to move it up on your to do list.  Kirk and I leave town on Saturday and will be gone all the week before the auction.  If I could get this organized before I leave, my committee members would be less stressed about their own to do lists.  Use these links for the auction form – in PDF and in Microsoft Word.
Please email to mplacetul(at)

We will auction all parties or gatherings in the live auction and “things” will be silent.

So far we have the following items to auction:

1.        Super Bowl Party in February
2.       Witching for Unmarked Graves at the Perryman Cemetery followed by beverages & appetizers on El Guapo’s rooftop in April
3.       Chili & Blues party

Silent Auction – I didn’t look closely at the items
1.        2 handmade items by Beverly North
2.       Something rolled up like a print or poster

For those who are unhappy with that, let us keep in mind that Christmas is on a Sunday this year. Whether we have Sunday School and Church on Christmas or not, I don’t think we will make much progress Christmas Day, aka: low attendance. As I said in class and will now say again, for those who are unhappy with the current officers (We know you’re out there) here is your chance to sign up for Office and show us how, and possibly set a standard for future Officers.

In short make your voice and presence known during the Election!

I will not be running for Office in 2012. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity, I’m very grateful.
