Let the bidding begin- the annual "It's a Basket Case" silent auction at the Hammond Street Senior Center, is going on now. More than 240 gift baskets are on display at the center this week from 8:30 to 4:30.
Each basket is filled with merchandise that's been donated by local businesses, organizations, and community members. Everything from sweet treats to weekend get-aways are up for bid this year, and each penny earned from the auction goes directly to the senior center's operating costs. If you can't make it during normal hours, there will be a special Thursday night session at 6 PM with refreshments. The bidding will wrap up around 1 PM on Friday, December 7th.
