Arcanum Lions Club holds pie auction

ARCANUM – Arcanum Lion’s Club Auctioneer, Lonnie Norris and his assistant Dick Troutwine conducted the annual Colossal Pie Auction on Oct. 18. The event was for club members with a ladies guest night. It is a private fundraiser by the club with the donation of outstanding bake goods and certificates provided by Lion Winston Brumbaugh, owner of Brumbaugh’s Fruit Farm. Highest bidder of the night broke all past year’s high bids with $132 for a butterscotch pie. Holding the new record bid is Rev. David Wilson.

Each year, the Lion’s members designate a local cause for the proceeds. This year’s selection to receive proceeds is the Curtis Miller family of Arcanum. Curtis is waiting a double transplant and the club elected to help the family with the proceeds to be used for daily living expenses during this time.

Club bidders purchased a variety of fruit pies, apple fritters, pumpkin cookies, cream horns, sheet cake and new this year were certificates to be redeemed at the fruit farm before the annual pie auction in 2013. The total sales and several cash donations by members came to $978. The club made a motion to round out the proceeds from the evening to an even $1000 to be given to the Miller family. The Colossal Pie Auction was pronounced a success. Bidders look forward to another auction in 2013. This year’s proceeds and highest bidder, David Wilson, have been placed in the record book holding the auction’s record. 

 A thank you is extended from the club to Brumbaugh’s Fruit Farm for making the auction possible.
