It’s that time of year again. Fall and time to rake leaves? No. Harvest Festivals? Nope. It’s time for our annual Basket Silent Auction. This year’s theme is “Baskets of Fall Fun”. We have a ton of wonderful empty baskets, just waiting for someone to pick one out, take it home, and fill it up. Need ideals? My first choice is always going to be a Chocolate Lovers basket. You could have hot cocoa, mugs, different chocolates, and a chocolate cookbook. Or how about a Spa basket with soaps, bath salts, a loofa or sponge, a pumice stone, candles, bubble bath, and lotion. Football is starting, you could make a Tailgating basket. It could have a cooler, a mini-grill, beer, chairs, snacks, a nerf football to toss around. The weather is cooling off, how about a Baking basket. Throw in different chips, vanilla, sprinkles, frosting, baking powder, an oven mitt, and measuring cups. Or how about a Game Night basket with playing cards, small board games like Yahtzee, crossword puzzle books or word games. The skies the limit as to what could go into a basket. Our auction will start on Monday, Oct. 10th and end Saturday, Oct. 22nd at 11am when the library closes that day. Pictures of the baskets will be here and on our Facebook page as they come in. Watch for updates!
