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

Michelle Place, Lynn Russell, Pam Sherman & Nancy Morgan
