Some of the items that will be auctioned include: wood items, quilts and blankets, homemade ice cream, jelly, noodles and holiday crafts. A sampling of items can be seen in the window of Reuman's Clothing in Traer.
Lunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ripley's famous maidrites, BBQ pork, salads, homemade ice cream and delicious pies will be served. These items will also be available for carry out.
