Tales From The Watersheds - Emily Hammon, AmeriCorps member with Monday Creek Restoration Project

On January 15th, MCRP hosted a Chinese Auction to help raise funds for summer programs and other costs. Nate, Elise, and I went to local businesses in Athens, Nelsonville, Logan, and New Lexington to collect items for people to bid on. We were very pleased at how willing and generous people were in their donations and received some great items for the auction. The Auction was held at Delyn Auditorium in New Straitsville. The weather held off for us and we had about 50-60 people show up to spend their Saturday night supporting MCRP. In addition to selling tickets for the auction, we also had a 50/50 drawing and sold sandwiches, chips, and pop to keep the people fed and happy. Overall, we raised $642.50 and after a donation to the Village of New Straitsville for use of the building and costs for food and supplies, we grossed around $500.00. We were very pleased with how well it turned out and how many people showed up and supported our organization. We had several volunteers to help set up and also had a couple of kids volunteer to be the ‘runners’ to deliver the prizes to the rightful winners. People really enjoyed the event and got to learn about what we do at MCRP and Rural Action, and it’s always great when we can get our message out to folks who may not be familiar with who we are and what we do.
