Going, going........ gone!
Rather than having a speaker and regular Tuesday luncheon meeting, club members and guests ushered in the holiday season by again holding its charitable Christmas auction in the early morning hours at Aultman Orrville Hospital's community room. 
A sumptuous hot breakfast buffet preceded the bidding under the direction of professional auctioneer Tim Miller from Kaufman Realty and Auctions of Millersburg.  Between Miller's lively oral auction and Orrville Rotary's traditional silent auction nearly $2,200 was raised to support the club's local and international service projects.  Guests attending the bidding festivities included Darrell Mosley, Bret Deffenbaugh and Corbett Coots as well as official Friend of Rotary members Mike Mast, Linda Runion, Shane Scarbrough and Frank Wolf.
Silent auction tickets sales were brisk according to Rotarians Becky Jewell, Dr. Amelia Laing and Amy Mast.
