KAREN RAKOWITZ | COURTESY PHOTO In what has become a very successful event, once again the Jourdanton Chamber of Commerce will provide the community with food and fun this Sunday, March 4. The annual barbecue and auction is just more than a fund raiser for a worthy cause, it has become a social event that brings family and friends together for a fun afternoon.

The barbecue chicken dinner with all the fixings will start serving at 11 a.m. and last until 1 p.m. Tickets are still available at $7 from any chamber member and also at the Jourdanton Community Library. With only 600 to sell, they are going fast.

While everyone is enjoying the food, the auctioneer will be warming his voice for an afternoon full of bidding and fun. Items gathered so far include wooden outdoor chairs, barn wood yard art, baskets of goodies and yard accessories. That is just a few examples of what may show up that day to be sold. Usually home baked items find their way to the auction block and make for a tasty dessert after the barbecue chicken.

If doing live bidding isn’t your thing, then the silent auction is bound to be right up your alley. The thrill of trying to outbid someone else is just as much fun. Mostly the auction consists of nice arts and crafts, live plants in unique planters, country styled items, a book or two and a varied amount of miscellaneous items donated by the community.

All the auction fun will start at 11 a.m. with the silent auction and at noon for the live auction. If anyone is interested in donating items for either of the auctions, be sure and call the library at 769-3087. Most items donated already are on display at the library if you want to get a sneak peek.
