Russ Blair organized another very successful silent auction of Ameraucana chickens and related items.  Thanks to all those that donated and bid.  Between the silent auction and some items auctioned off after our annual club meeting we brought in $720!

Good job John.   It was truly a group effort, and very enjoyable.    I want to thank everyone who purchased a copy of "The Ameraucana Book" at the show.    If anyone is trying to think of Christmas gifts, I still have a few copies left, and no more will be printed.  Actually, the property of the printer I was working with was a very valuable piece of real estate.   He sold his location and retired at a relatively early age.
