Fir Lawn auction

Pastor Joe Medley, left, serving as auctioneer, acknowledges a bid from Alice Grovom during Fir Lawn Lutheran Church’s second annual auction and baked potato supper Friday, June 14. The event was held to raise money to send local children to summer camp. It raised about $7,500, which is enough to send 22 or 23 youngsters, depending on the ages of who goes, to Camp Lutherwood in Cheshire. Medley said the church sent 12 last year. “We feel very blessed,” he said.
