The rain held off on a dreary day as 75 people Sunday made the trek and completed the mile-and-a-half walk at the eighth annual CROP Walk for Hunger, which started at St. Paul United Church of Christ.
The event, which had been held on Saturdays and used to begin at Miller’s Corral, was moved to Sundays a few years ago in an effort to attract more participants. Event volunteer Darrel Acker said the move has seemed to pay off. The event has always been held in the fall season.
BUCKLAND — The Buckland Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary held a quarter auction to raise money for the department’s auxiliary fund Saturday.
Overall, approximately 25 donated items and 100 items overall were auctioned off to approximately 125 people in attendance. Of the 125 or so bidders, mostly women, even a few men got into the mix.
