UM Harvest Auction. . . —Let the bidding begin!

Yes, once again it’s time for an evening of fun at the Lime Springs United Methodist Church on Monday, Sept. 29. The fun starts as soon as you arrive, but the auction starts at 7 p.m. SHARP!

Dan Hershberger and Dick Ollendieck will lead bidders to pay all-time highs for any pie, a jar of home-canned pickles, loaves of bread and other baked goods and craft items. They do a mighty clever job of pulling folks into the action, and their humor makes for an evening of good-natured rivalry among all who join the fun!

The public is invited to this unique auction, which marks its 85th birthday this year. The very first sale was held on Monday, Nov. 30, 1929. Rev. Richard Prescott was the instigator of the festival. That first sale raised over $100 for the church renovation fund. Now, over that amount has been raised for just ONE pie! The total for the sale is well over $5,000.
Old-fashioned fun has continued to make this fund-raising event the highlight of the year for many. You won’t want to miss it!
