Kiwanis Auction and Yard Sale Kicks Off

ORONO - One of the biggest yard sales and auctions in the area kicked off Thursday night in Orono with dozens ready to run.

A line forming around four o'clock waiting for the go ahead to start grabbing items at the Kiwanis Auction.


As they say, one man's junk, is another man's treasure and there was plenty of it!


"A lot of work goes into this," Jim Dill, co-chair of the Kiwanis Auction, says. "Thousands and thousands of hours of picking stuff up, repairing stuff, but it's all for a good cause. Everything we raise goes directly to charity. We usually raise 50-thousand dollars."


"It's fun. Everybody gets together and we have a great time," Bob Renshaw, a veteran to the auction, says. "It's a race to get there and find the goodies. I like it because I do collect antiques and stuff like that."


The auction begins at seven p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Gates open at 5 p.m. every night.
