SHOW and TELL

SILENT AUCTION

 

February’s program will be a member Show & Tell, followed by our annual Silent Auction.

Club members will be given five minutes each to show and discuss an item(s) from their collection or personal creations. Please send an email to Program Chair Ken Rogers at: kenrogers4u@juno.com with your name, phone number and describe what you would like to show.

Following Show & Tell we’ll have our fun and exciting Silent Auction. The items up for bid may include slabs, rough, specimens, tools, jewelry, jewelry supplies, collecting gear, books and more. It should be an entertaining evening with wonderful bargains and treasures. The items will be displayed and bidders can preview them. When the auction begins, bids can be written on the bidding sheets, or raised from a previous bid. At the end of the auction, there will be a one minute warning, then “all pencils down.” No more bidding after the “all pencils down” notice. The last and highest bid gets that item, at that bid price.

The auction will include donations the Club has received over the past year from members and friends. The money raised will support Club activities.

Please donate items to our auction! We request that each member and guest donate three to six items, such as specimens, slabs, cabochons, tools, jewelry findings, finished jewelry, related books or magazines. All donations are appreciated.

Please bring your donations to the Club Shop during Shop hours or to the meeting. Label
your donation “for Silent Auction” and if possible please identify specimens, slabs or rough. Items brought to the meeting will be auctioned, time permitting, or will be used for our Club summer picnic auction.

Please volunteer to help set-up, tally bid sheets and/or clean up. To volunteer or for help with large donations, please e-mail me at: kenrogers4u@juno.com
