Silent Auction added to Fashion Tea

The Beaver Island Rural Health Center Fashion Tea is all set to go. On Thursday, July 8th, 120 lucky ticket holders will sit on the decks of beautiful Deerwood and enjoy tea, sandwiches, and assorted pastries while viewing an assortment of new fashions from the Beaver Boat-Tique and the East Wind Spa. Our two-hour festivities will also include some auctioning off of objets d'art and other donations not included in the Silent Auction. Don't forget to purchase your ticket early at the Beaver Boat-Tique, the East Wind Spa, and the new Health Center.

We will need thirty more teapots to help complete our tea service so please let Leonor know if you can bring one with you (448-2894.) Remember to bring your checkbooks or cash to purchase the auction items at the tea.

The Silent Auction, which will be going on from June 25th through July 8th, now has grown to over 40 donations. This is so exciting to have so many generous contributions, not only by our merchants and service businesses, but also by all of the Board members, and many friends and neighbors. Some of these donations will be put together for bidding as “a package” to be bid on. (The redemption of the gift certificates can be used separately, however, for your convenience.) Some services or items will be conditional depending on time of year and subject to reservation and availability. The packages will hopefully draw higher bids. They will make great gifts for anniversaries, birthdays, and family get-togethers. Each of the auction items will be listed in the Health Center lobby. Remember that the whole idea is fund-raising for the “health of it!” Let's be generous and get bidding! You can either sign the bidding sheets located in the lobby of the new Health Center through noon July 8th or you can email Leonor through noon July 6th at with your best bid. You will be notified of your winnings by either telephone or email so please don't forget to include your number. All winners are expected to pay by July 15th or the item will be offered to the next highest bidder – Good Luck!!
