Our community band had a very good fundraising auction. Generally I don't like auctions, but this one was fun and low key. No over the top oneupmanship bidding of $15,000 for a tea party for ten girls, say, like we witnessed years ago at a private school function, costly items spewing out of the mouth of an auctioneer almost to the point of incomprehension; the band's affair was pretty understated. I read of community-based auctions held recently which raised kind of amazing amounts of money. One of them was held in a big outdoor tent, without an expensive dinner attached to it, so they probably saved on that part. Something to think about for next year.
We're marching into parade season, which I hope means summer will try to make an appearance.
