Presentation and discussion led by Dave Murphy on origins and historical evolvement of Rotary Auction & Yard Sale.  Although very successful overall this year, a deficiency needing attention is tracking down quality items for the Auction.  This includes efforts to solicit gift certificates, the number of which has fallen off considerably in recent years.
 
Thank you Walter
