W. Pawlet auction Thursday

T he West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department will host its annual auction this evening at the West Pawlet Firehouse, Route 153, in West Pawlet.
The auction event begins at 6 p.m. and it does not end until all items are gone.
Auctioneer for the event will be Chriss Mars, son of the late Vermont auctioneer Bus Mars. Chriss will use his talent of rapid-fire, staccato calls to entice folks to purchase the products they know that they need to take home with them.
Many bargains, including assorted antiques, tools, tables, dressers, mirrors, an old school desk, knick-knacks, glassware, toys and more arrive daily and await shoppers. All of the items are available to view starting at 5 p.m.
The auction is a charity event in support of the West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department. The proceeds from donated items help the department’s general operating costs and is used for much-needed equipment and training programs, both for new recruits and continuing education for long-time department member volunteers. Donated items for the auction are still being gladly accepted by the department.
Food will be available for purchase and the menu will include grilled burgers, hot dogs and French fried potatoes. Sodas and bottled water are also on the menu.
For more information, contact Dave Hosley, 802-645-0158 or Tom Collard at 802-645-0839 or email wpvfd@yahoo.com .
