What Will You Bid?


The Richfield Springs Community Center raised money for operational costs at a special Zone Club Holiday Dinner and Auction this month. Invited guests enjoyed dinner at the Center and then bid on the many items collected for the fund raiser. Zone Club donors help pay for about half the cost of operating the facility. Auctioneer Sid Talma, assisted by wife Grace, kept the items rolling and the bids flowing. While the pandemic has limited activities over the past two years, the Center runs SOUPer Seniors, featuring a light lunch and activities for seniors every Wednesday, Senior Meals on Thursdays with the Otsego County Office for the Aging, and the popular Stories Come Alive program for kids with a story read out loud accessible through the Center’s Facebook page. The Zone Club dinner and auction replaced the annual Holiday Dinner and Auction this year due to pandemic restrictions. The Center is also available for non-profit groups, businesses and individuals to rent for their events. For information on that, call 315-858-3200; email rent@richfieldzone.org or go to www.richfieldspringscommunitycenter.org
