Another Successful Auction!

The 24th annual Shenandoah District Ministries Auction is now history, and preliminary numbers point to another great success!

Estimated net proceeds (as of June 15) are in excess of $200,000. Included in that total are the cattle auction, which brought in $15,889.50; the other auctions, which combined for $92,038.50; and income from such enterprises as food sales, plant sales, Sow & Grow, baked goods, etc. And there still are late-arriving bills to be paid and some additional income.

On Friday evening, 1,124 people dined on 75 gallons of oysters plus country ham and chicken - up from 1,050 last year. On Saturday morning, 465 breakfasts were served (265 omelets and 200 pancake breakfasts); last year, 445 people had breakfast at the auction. And at lunch on Saturday, 226 plate lunches were served, compared to 170 last year. Add to that all of the a la carte options, the ice cream, the donuts, the apple dumplings, etc., and it's a fair guess that no one left hungry.

Thanks to all who volunteered to make the auction a reality and to those who came to eat, bid, buy and enjoy what has become an annual reunion in support of Brethren Disaster Ministries.

And next year will be a major anniversary - the 25-year milestone! Plan now to take part on May 19 and 20, 2017.
