It was a festive evening in early December and the Community Church was redolent with the aroma of roast pork and apple crisp. which nearly 90 diners enjoyed, casting their bids between courses for the 100-odd items on the tables of silent auction choices.

Co-sponsored by the Historical Society and Friends of the Griswold Memorial Library, the bi-annual benefit dinner and auction raised $1,994 for each. Doug Wilkins ably presided over the live auction of some 30 artifacts and services.

We are grateful to the 70 individuals and businesses who donated 134 items and services as well as cash donations to defray expenses. As always, we are especially grateful to Sharon Call, who single-handedly worked her magic in the kitchen.
