Yes, we are auctioning wine tonight.
Our oldest member, at 100 years young, Sara Gyer, donated a most of her collection to the club for this auction. Thank you Sara. She was accompanied by one of her friends, a person new to bonsai, who came to bid on her trees.
SOLD! The final item was a large old European olive that was hotly sought after and finally was won by a happy Jim Pelling.
Thank you one and all for the delicious food, wonderful donated items and the enthusiastic bidding. Thanks for all of the people who worked behind the scene to make sure everything was there and in place in order for us all to have a fun night.
