Shepherdstown Men's Club Is Asking Items The Shepherdstown Men's Club is soliciting donations of items to be sold at its annual community auction, to be held on August 19 at the Shepherd- stown Public Library. Proceeds from the auction, which is the Men's Club's only fund-raising event, go to support the Shepherdstown War Memorial Building and Morgan's Grove Park. Jefferson County Com- missioner Henry M. Snyder, auction committee chairman, suggests some of the items that might be of particular interest: furniture, dishes and glassware, appliances, even broken ones; farm equipment, fresh vegetables, fruits, cured meats and livestock; old cars, and anything else that might be gathering dust in the attic, basement, or barn. "Some of the top auctioneers in the area will donate their talents toward selling these items," Snyder said, "and, based on past performance, they can sell most anything." "Of course," he smiled, "the best kind of donation is always cash. In past years, a substantial part of the auction proceeds has come from cash contributions." Items' that are donated are examined before the auction by members of the auction com- mittee. Broken appliances, for example, are marked 'broken'; those in running condition also are appropriately marked. Men's Club solicitors will pick up items anywhere in the Jef- ferson - Berkeley County area between now and the auction. To obtain pickup service, contact Snyder at 876-6269 or James Van Evera at 876-6390. The Shepherdstown Men's Club is a non-profit, tax exempt organization, so the value of any item donated for the auction is tax deductible. Receipts for donations will be provided on request following the sale. The Men's Club auction is a major community event each year, drawing scores of area residents for fun -- and bargains.
