Adair County 4-H program to benefit from silent auction
GREENFIELD — The Adair County 4-H program will be holding a silent auction again this year at Adair County Fair. Bids will be accepted beginning at 6 p.m. July 16 and will continue until 1 p.m. July 20. If there are active bidders at the cut-off point, they will be allowed to continue to bid on the item for which they are competing.
The Youth Action Committee is still soliciting items for the auction. At this time, auction items range from 15 tons of road rock delivered anywhere in Adair County to a garden gazing ball and stand, men’s wristwatch, metal “welcome” sign, photo frames, model tractors, personal paper shredder, small tool set and gift certificates. Minnesota Vikings fans will want to check out the NFL football autographed by quarterback Adrian Peterson plus signed full-color photos of two Minnesota Vikings team members. Organizers anticipate there will be more than 60 items by the beginning of the silent auction including toy tractors, dog food and gift baskets.
Anyone wishing to donate to the silent auction may do so by contacting Adair County Extension at 641-743-8412 or by dropping the item off at the 4-H and FFA Center noon July 15.
The silent auction will benefit the Adair County 4-H youth program. The Youth Action Committee raises money annually to support the many facets of the youth program including scholarships for youth to attend camp and conferences, entry fees for team events, recognition for record book completion and the many educational programs offered.
