A month long Silent Auction fundraiser has begun at the Langlois Public Library. The Auction continues through Saturday, September 10 when the annual Blueberry Bash ends the Silent Auction. You are cordially invited to the Blueberry Bash, a free party which starts at 6 p.m. on September 10 with wine and cheese. Silent Auction bidding ends at 6:45 p.m. when blueberry cobbler a la mode is served to attendees while they enjoy a hilarious live baked goods auction before taking home their winnings. Bidders do not have to be present to win.
The Langlois Library Silent Auction is an eclectic shopping resource. You can bid on local foods such as a spring lamb, veggies, cranberries, jam, blueberries and albacore. Could you use a pop-up greenhouse (donated by B & B Farm Supply)? A queen sized Sunbonnet Sue Quilt (donated by the Dew Valley Club)? How about a fabulous Dooney & Bourke Hand Bag, or a framed Lois Miller egret photo? There are certificates for a night at the fabulous Redfish Loft in Port Orford with a stunning view of the ocean, for a visit to OMSI, for tickets to the Shakespeare Festival or the Wildlife Safari. Bid on a portrait session with a local photographer, or on one of the several objects from Japan. Take a thrilling aerial tour in Joe Pestana’s ultra lite airplane. Or be practical, and bid on a shop vac, or on some tractor work.
