On Saturday, April 23rd, the Olmsted Unitarian Universalist Congregation held its annual service auction.  This year we raised more money than we ever have in my memory.  Between the auctioned off items, the silent auction and the admission and Chinese auction ticket sales we had a grand total of $5,321.00.  The place was packed with eager participants and generous donors.  The Committee had a superb selection of items, outstanding food and beverage and created a great atmosphere for the evening.  A great thank you to all the workers, donors and bidders.  Without you we couldn’t have done it! 
The total raised this year is $5,321.00 while for the past two years we raised $3,873 in 2015 and $2,324 in 2014 – that’s a remarkable increase.  Again, THANKS to ALL OF YOU for your help.
