The kick-off party will include hors d’oeuvres and nonalcoholic drinks, and you’ll also have the opportunity to view all the Silent Auction items and begin placing bids. Bill Pierce will serve as bartender, with lovely background music provided by Bill Davy.
Participants are also invited to dress like Scott and Zelda to celebrate the event. Library director Vicki Shurly has promised to be the ultimate Gatsby girl, pearls and all!
The auction will continue through the week, and bids will be accepted until Friday, May 11 at 3 p.m. Winning bids will be announced that evening or on Saturday.
Silent auction items include collectibles, gift certificates, books and games, arts and crafts, Old Mission Peninsula products and much more. Old Mission Gazette has happily donated a selection of items from our sister site, Old Mission Peninsula Store, including OMP hats, greeting cards, an OMP calendar, car stickers, and photo prints by yours truly.
Peninsula Community Library’s building fund currently stands at $1.9 million. The Peninsula Township Board recently approved a special use permit for the new building, to be located on the corner of Center Road and Island View Road. For more information, contact the library at (231) 223-7700.
