It’s that time of year once again, the planning and promotion for Trinity Historical Society's Annual Auction and Garden Party is in full swing, our 19th year – WOW! - please remember that it will be held on Friday, August 16th starting at 2:30 pm. (please take note of the start time). It will take place at the Trinity Museum Garden, located on Church Road, with our auctioneer being Mr. Chris O’Dea of O’Dea’s Auction & Realty Room.
1) At this time we are seeking donations for the event and we are placing you to the challenge to either come up with an item(s) yourselves that are unique and one of a kind; an antique or something from the back of your closet, spare room, basement or garage/shed.
2) We would also challenge you to reach out to your family, friends, email and Facebook/Twitter contacts to see if they would be interested in donating something for our annual event. I have attached our letter of request for donations as well as our poster – please distribute and promote!
As you would know from previous years if you have been in attendance home made baked and cooked items go over well or gift certificates for meals/nibbles in your homes/gardens later in the season; jams, pickles, preserves as well as homemade cakes and breads; hand crafted items always go over well as would a planter of flowers from your garden or some free advice/labour on gardening, carpentry etc.
The possibilities of what your contributed auction item(s) may be are endless and we ask that you put on your thinking caps to come up with something that may be unique and one of a kind.
It would be greatly appreciated if you can drop items off at the Lester-Garland House by Monday August 12th or please notify Daphne or Jim of what your item(s) may be in order for us to get a better idea of what we will have for the event. Please remember your contributions to our event helps us raise the necessary funds to allow the Society to continue to operate. We can also possibly arrange for pick-up of any items in the Clarenville to Bonavista region; some parts of St. John’s and would ask those that may be donating gift certificates to please mail or email them to us at the following address: P.O. Box 8 Trinity, NL A0C 2S0 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Should you wish to donate something for the auction, you may telephone the event organizers – Daphne or Jim at 709-464-3599 or email us - email@example.com or reach out to us through our Facebook Page – we can be found under Trinity Historical Society.
