As part of the 2013 Christmas Show and Sale at the Park Ridge Galleria in Sioux Falls, a Silent Auction provided the National Kidney Foundation with a check for $300.00. With only four of our members exhibiting their work for show and sale, the auction was a welcome addition.
Thanks to members of our club for donating carvings, tools, and books. Thanks to the Willocks in Faribault, MN for donating three one-year subscriptions to their Carving Magazine along with sample issues. Thanks to David and Sally Nye for donating their latest book on fan bird carving. Many thanks to Gene Dickey and his family for setting up the tables and managing the sales and all the details for the Silent Auction. And, of course, we must thank our own Glen Ilse for showing up as Santa Clause.
