TFSRI Annual Fall Auction

By on Aug 16, 2018 in FrontPageNews |

Hello everyone, apologies for not updating the website often enough! This year we’ve opted not to run our Annual All Class Fish Show, the last in the nation. We have two primary reasons and issues we need to face, available help to set up the show and enough entries to fill the show. Plus, in order to win cash prizes, we needed people or businesses to sponsor the classes to win first, second, and third. But rest assured, we are taking these challenges head on and figuring out solutions for next year to come back with a roar! Our Auction will be held on Sunday, September 9th at noon. Doors open at 9am, viewing of the items ends at 11:45 and we start the auction at noon. As usual the kitchen will be stocked with delicous sandwiches and beverages, we will have raffles and 50/50 raffles, there will also be a small fish exhibition by the members of TFSRI! Auction ends when the last item is sold (usually around 5pm). As always the Auction is held at the rectory hall of St. Josephs at 1303 Mendon Rd., Cumberland,...
