Rodeo City Senior Citizens Hold Fun Auction

GERRY — On Oct. 8, with Pastor Don Moore and John Sipos servicing as auctioneers, a fun auction of many items was held as the main program for the Gerry Rodeo Senior Citizens.

All those attending the program donated items used for the auction. Moore added humor to each item when auctioned, which made a fun time for all. At times, the bidding was close, but in the end, the highest bidder was the recipient. This was a good time for some people to do their holiday shopping early. The auctioneers stood by one rule: “any movement is a bid.” Some sat on their hands so as not to move. Helping to deliver items were Barbara Brown and Ed Yager.

The Rodeo City Senior group meets on the second Friday of each month at noon in the United Methodist Church of Gerry. The gathering includes bringing a dish of food to share, and those attending are to bring their own table service, followed by a program. Ann Hellman serves as the group’s president, and welcomed all to the gathering. Peg Harrison is the secretary, and Gayle McKinney serves as the treasurer. Festive table decorations were provided by President Hellman. The pledge of allegiance was led by Sipos. Pastor Phil Shay gave the opening prayer prior to the meal. Thanks to Cecil and Jan Miller for organizing the food arrangement and the clean-up.

This senior group has been meeting 60 years for a luncheon and program. The next gathering of the group will be on Friday, Nov. 12, at noon. All those attending are asked to bring a dish of food to share and their own table service. The program will be the history of Thanksgiving by Sipos with a Thanksgiving prayer by Pastor Shay.
