Spring Auction –one month to go!


       Auction Countdown! . – 5 – . – 4 – . auction-donation-form . – 3 – . . .

The donations are coming in and we’ve got some great items and services for you to bid on…..and there is a lot of interest in the reverse auction. There is still time to participate in both.

Wondering what to donate this year? The possibilities are endless: pool parties, cookouts, and dinners are always a hit and they keep the fun going throughout the year. Maybe you’d like to host a kid friendly event, or perhaps a Super Bowl party next February. Do you have a skill or hobby that you’d like to share? Don’t forget to ask some of your favorite merchants to donate a gift certificate. If you’re thinking about a donation and want some help figuring out the details, just talk to anyone on the Auction Team. You can submit your Auction Donation Form on line at through March 17th , or fill out a manual form (available in the church lobby).

Don’t forget the reverse auction! Do you have some service you need but just can’t find the right person? Perhaps you need your garden weeded, some wood split, or maybe you just can’t get the hang of your new computer, smart phone, or some clever new software. Chances are there is someone at First Parish who would be happy to provide the service, especially if it helps the church. The reverse auction will connect you!

If you have something you would like to purchase, simply fill out the Reverse Auction Form. Tell us what you would be willing to “pay” First Parish for the service. We’ll include your desired item as part of the silent auction. Anyone willing to provide the service will sign the bid sheet, you’ll pay the church, and you and your new helper will arrange for the work to be done.

The Auction Team needs a few folks on the day of the Auction to help set up, serve food, and bring the Parish Hall back to normal after the Auction ends. If you’re able to help, just sign up at Auction Volunteer.

We hope you have marked your calendars for Saturday, April 7th, at 6:00 PM. Bring the kids – there will be childcare with pizza and a program.


Auction tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the door.

Any questions, please contact the Auction Team: Sherene Aram, Sherri Cline, Gail Hardenbergh, Jan Hardenbergh, Sara Hartman,  Anna Lee, and Sheila Murphy. Or email us at

See you at the Auction!
