Maine 4-H Days - 2013 Maine 4-H Days Take a Chance Silent Auction
Saturday, July 20, 2013
The Take-A-Chance Silent Auction is back again this year, and this year is happening on Saturday evening. This annual auction raises money to help send 4-Hers to the Eastern States Exposition in W. Springfield, Massachusetts. Members of many of the animal commodities are participating to help cover expenses for their teams to attend the event. Over one hundred 4-Hers from all over the State of Maine participate in animal events at Eastern States with their dairy, beef, horse, sheep, goat, dog, and working steer projects. The public is invited to this event.
4-Hers are collecting quality new items, handmade items, gift certificates, and certificates for services. Donations are still being accepted and can be made by calling the State 4-H Office at 1-800-287-0274. Tickets for the auction will be 10 for $2.50 and packaged in envelopes worth $2.50, $5.00, $10.00, and $20.00. No wrinkled or bent tickets will be accepted. Dollar tickets will be sold for items valued at greater than $100.00.
Viewing of the items in the auction will be from 5:00 pm – 7:00 in the Windsor Mall building on the fairgrounds. The drawing will begin at 7:00 pm.
