The ninth annual Basket Auction & Social Evening of the Pequot Lakes Library will be held from 6-9 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 12, at Deacon’s Lodge in Breezy Point.
Tickets are $12 per person and may be purchased at the library or from any board member. Tickets will also be available at the door. Come to enjoy a good evening with friends. High school students will offer hors d’oeuvres and sweets. A cash bar will be open.
Everyone will have the opportunity to bid on baskets filled with themed items of many varieties and values. There will be a raffle for a quilt made by Shirley Bryant. Three other quilts Bryant made and donated will be live-auctioned.
This is the major yearly fundraiser for the library. Proceeds from the event help with expenses such as purchasing new materials and supplies, library upkeep and adding to the endowment fund set up to ensure the future of the library.
The library is still operated solely by volunteers and continues to be an important part of the community.
