You may recall that several months ago I asked for donations for the Book Club I sponsor at school. Several people responded with books. The club has been an apathetic group this year and the planned raffle was going nowhere. No one would volunteer to man the tables during lunches for a week. So, I made it a silent auction, got the librarian to display the books in the library for a week, and now the deed is done. The auction closed today, after going for a week. We didn’t make as much money as I’d hoped to, and some students got amazing deals on really good books, but considering the economic situation of our population, I’m happy every lot (of at least two items) received multiple bids.
Thanks again to everyone who sent things. Our secretary is still working on personalized thank-you letters that you’ll get … someday.
