Verdict: Jury finds St. Marie guilty on all counts

Annual Holiday Fundraiser /Silent Auction set for Dec. 2

The annual Silent Auction and Holiday Fundraiser for the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center will be held from 6-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2 at the New York Mills City Hall Ballroom.

This special event will feature treats and a wine tasting (courtesy of the New York Mills Civic and Commerce Association) as well as a chance to enjoy the community display of holiday trees decorated for the Christmas season. Call (218) 385-3339 for additional information.

The Cultural Center will host its annual silent auction as part of the holiday festivities. This is the largest fundraising event of the year for the center. The Farmers and Merchants State Bank of New York Mills provides a cash match for up to $2,500 of the donations made to the Center during this holiday event.

One special feature of this fundraiser is that each year the center gives one lucky attendee a season ticket to all the events to be held at the center in the upcoming year. This year that means tickets to a flamenco dance and music concert and the John Gorka Holiday Concert to be held in December 2011. All members whose memberships are current as of Dec. 3 will be eligible for this drawing.
