Mark your calendars now for the 68th Annual Back Mountain Memorial Library Auction to be held this year on July 10, 11, 12 and 13. This highly-anticipated event is held at the library grounds at 96 Huntsville Road in Dallas.
There is no better way to get ready for “auction fever” than to attend the annual Auction Kick-off Dinner and Mini Auction. on Monday, June 2 at the Apple Tree Terrace at Newberry Estates in Dallas.
The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by the dinner and mini auction at 7 p. m. The dinner will be buffet-style and will include a grilling station, featuring carved flat iron steak with horseradish sauce; Chicken Marsala and shrimp-encrusted cod with lemon sauce. Other delicious (and tempting) choices will also be available at the pasta Station and dessert station.
The cost of the dinner is $24 per person and is open to the public.
Reservations can be made at the library by Friday, May 23.
NOT TOO EARLY TO DONATE
Remember that it’s never too early to donate any items for the annual auction and the library is especially looking for any antiques, nearly olde collectibles, gently-used furniture, jewelry and household items. You never know what you’ll find at the auction.
Any students needing community service hours may contact the library to sign up to help during the set up of the auction. Set-up volunteers are needed on July 6, 7 and 8. Many volunteers (ages 12 and up) are needed and there is sure to be some area that could use a helping hand. Call the library at 570-675-1182 for more information.
The library will be closed on Monday, May 26 for Memorial Day and will re-open on Tuesday. May 27 with regular hours (9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.)
