November 22/23rd were a busy two days for Kitimat Rotarians.  The Rotarian action actually started a couple days before with the moves of tables, backdrops, and finally auction items down to the storefront in Mountainview Square.  The normal hustle and good humor followed as items were placed where they belonged (some 300 of them) on the bid tables.   Lyle did a great job as our Auction Chair and he has a few great ideas to share for next year!   Even though we had not planned to start our Saturday auction day at Constant Cravings everyone dealt with the “lost key” with a lot of goodwill and some great coffee. There was lots of laughter and community spirit that warmed up our Auction Headquarters for sure. Our dedicated auction participants were in great form and there were some new folks who really enjoyed the auction. The friends of Rotary volunteers were amazing.

Our sincere thanks go to all the businesses and individuals in Kitimat and Terrace who supported our auction with their donations of items or cash.  It is due to your support that we are able to help where help is needed.  A great example is "Between the Cracks" featured in the story below.
