A major fundraiser for the chamber, the auctionwill open at 7 a.m. Thursday, July 2, and close at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 4. Winning bidders will receive gift certificates via first class mail; physical items must be picked up at the chamber office, 6 Park Road.
To participate and place bids, participants simply need to create an account. No credit card or payment information is required to place bids.
