Lacey Rotary TRF Dinner Auction
at Indian Summer Golf & Country Club
Opening remarks by Club President Shellica Trevino to the gathering of about 100 members, guests and volunteers.
Next Thursday's meeting will be at Indian Summer Country Club.
The auctioneer for the evening's festivities, Tom Nelson drew out the generous contributors and heated bidders. 
Greg Cuoio explained the value of the scholarship program in the Lacey Rotary Foundation, the non-profit arm of Lacey Rotary Club.  Attenders contributed to the LRF - bidding various amounts to the Foundation.
With a confident voice, a young member of the Boys & Girls Club explained what it meant to her family when they received furnishings and repairs donated from a past Club auction. Many members contributed to the "Triple Treat" items which were donated to others.
