Make it, bake it or buy it for Homemakers auction


By Tozi Rubin
Special to The PREVIEW

The Mountain View Homemakers will host its fourth annual Make It, Bake It or Buy It live auction on Thursday, July 13.

Join us at the Methodist Church on Lewis Street at 11:30 a.m. for a finger-food lunch, followed by the auction. This program has been a huge success in the past.

Each member is asked to bring one crafted item that she made or one dish that she baked or something new that she bought for the live auction. Again, each lady is asked to bring just one item. Baked goods such as casseroles that can be frozen are especially popular. And items of interest to men are also fine as we encourage husbands and other men to join us that day.

The auction will move along rapidly, which is one of the reasons for all of the fun. In fact, this is a great day for members to bring guests to join in the auction.

We will be accepting cash or checks for your purchases.

Members will bring finger food for lunch instead of our customary potluck buffet. Guests need not bring anything for the lunch.

The funds that are collected at this event will go towards the group’s operating funds. These funds pay for such expenses as providing a meal for Habitat for Humanity volunteers, groceries for our volunteer day at Loaves and Fishes, and hams for our Christmas party.

Note: Our meeting is taking place at the same time as Loaves and Fishes across the street, so parking will be at a premium. Everyone is encouraged to carpool.

Mountain View Homemakers is a 50-year-old women’s service organization. We welcome all area women who are interested in bettering their lives, the lives of their families, and the community as a whole. The monthly meetings include lunch and a speaker or activity.

There are no dues or membership requirements to join this friendly, interesting and diverse group of women. And, “homemaking” skills are not necessary. Call Tozi Rubin at 731-3360 with questions.
