COE HILL — Cloudy skies and posted storm warnings veered the fundraiser festivities to take shelter at the Wollaston Community Centre the morning of Sat., June 19.

The crowd was small, but mighty, contributing $475 to summer recreation programs in Coe Hill area.

Auctioneer Wally James kept the crowd entertained with his witty comments while handlers Beth K and Maggie C coaxed the crowd to bid on the much appreciated donations.

Sid B and Sam P cooked hot dogs and hamburgers to perfection while Bonnie P and Verna B assisted with food orders and auction payments.
