Important Dispatches


By Mark Terry
This is your “heads up” to start collecting items for the Annual Auction! As you may know, besides dues and individual donations, the auction is our only source of funds to keep the PSCWRT going. The bulk of it goes to finance our out of town speakers for airfare and accommodations.

In terms of what to bring to the auction, anything you feel someone else will want suffices. If everyone who attends brings at least one item for the silent auction, that would be great (although the more the merrier!). Additionally, if you have some major items for the Live Auction, those would be welcome as well. Sports tickets (there will be a couple up for bid for a Sounders match), paintings, rare books & documents. Be creative and be generous!

We are still looking for a coordinator for the auction, so if you are interested in helping, that would be great. At this point, it appears that our long-time Live Auction MC Dick Miller will be here to do it again. The actual timetable and details for the silent and live auction has yet to be determined, but we will let you know in online updates and in the April newsletter.

Thank you in advance for bringing items to donate AND to be generous in bidding on items. It’s pretty simple- without the annual auction, our Round Table will not survive.
