Silent Auction 2021

Items or photos of items with descriptions are needed by Friday, February 19!

Each year we have a silent auction as one of our events to raise the operating funds needed to maintain our office and our part time staff. Our auction is usually tied to our Annual Meeting event. For 2021 we will be trying an online auction instead of our normal, in person, silent auction. The plan is for the auction to be “live” for a week starting March 8, including during the online Annual Meeting on Sunday March 14.

We are now officially accepting donations to include in our auction! We accept a wide variety of items including consumables (baked goods, jams, jellies, etc.), services (kayaking lessons, lawn or yard work, sewing repair, etc.), decorative and artistic items, experiences (movie tickets, yoga, gift certificates, shoreline fishing, etc.) and more. You can get creative, the ideas are endless! 

You must include your contact information (name, phone and email), a minimum price to start the auction, the approximate value, and an expiration date if it is a service.

If you have any questions or would like to submit a donation, please contact:
