Organizers make plans for annual Silent Auction

The countdown to bidding in the fifth annual Grady County Historical Society’s Silent Auction has begun.
This year’s auction opens on Monday, Nov. 12, and will run through Thursday night, Nov. 15.
Historical Society members are out and about soliciting auction items and if this year’s auction is like the four previous ones, there will be a wide variety of items with something sure to please most anyone.
Building on the popularity of last year’s event, the Historical Society, for the second straight year, will host a Chicken Pilau dinner on Thursday to close the auction.
Master chefs Logan Lewis and Bennie Prince will be cooking up what is arguably the best wash pot pilau known to man.
Auction items will go on display at the Grady County Agri-Center beginning Monday, Nov. 12. Bidders may visit the exhibition hall Nov. 12, 13 and 14 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m.
Tickets for the pilau will go on sale shortly and the dinner will be served from 4 until 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15.
No bids will be accepted after 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, according to Auction publicity chairman Yvonne Childs.
All proceeds from the auction and the pilau benefit the Grady County Museum and History Center.
