The annual BUUF Goods and Service Auction took place Saturday October 23. In total, $2400 was raised in bids on a wide array of goods and services offered by our members. The children added $171.00 to the pot with the sales of their pizzas, cookies and soup. I know everyone ate well that night. As usual, the BUUF congregation offered many wonderful items of which were bid on very eagerly. And the bids were encouraged with great enthusiasm by Walter Pascal, our evening’s auctioneer.Gloria Weberg handmade three sock monkeys and Julie Williams offered two fun dinner parties with paella or chili and croquet. Members will enjoy a home cooked meal by Jim Mc Connell while they watch and then discuss the movie, “The Reader.” Amy Eklund’s feet will stay warm and colorful wearing a pair of Francie Porter’s hand knit socks. In turn, Marilyn Klawiter hopes to learn the secrets of Amy’s photography skills. Emily Hecht can’t wait to sit in a speeding racecar with Pat Ohmann at the wheel. Chris Sirotiak is going to treat someone lucky with home baked desserts, soups and pasta for four months. These are just a sampling of the many wonderful items and goods offered.
