Thursday, Aug. 24, 5:30 p.m.—WEST PAWLET—The West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department auction will be held Thursday, Aug. 24 at the West Pawlet Firehouse, Route 153, West Pawlet. The auction event begins at 5:30 p.m. and ends when all items are gone.
Auctioneer for the event will be Chris Mars, son of the late, famous Vermont auctioneer Bus Mars, who taught his son well the tradition of presenting an entertaining Vermont auction. Mars will use his talent of rapid-fire, staccato calls to entice folks to bid and buy. Many bargains, including assorted antiques, tools, tables, dressers, mirrors, an old school desk, knick-knacks, glassware, toys and more arrive daily and await shoppers. All items are available to view starting at 4 p.m. before the bidding begins at 5:30 p.m.
The auction is a charity event in support of the West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department. The proceeds from donated items help the department’s general operating costs and for much-needed equipment and training programs, both for new recruits and continuing education for long-time department member volunteers. Donated items for the auction are still being gladly accepted by the department.
Food will be available for purchase, including grilled burgers, hot dogs and French fried potatoes, plus sodas and bottled water.
