Salmon Creek Community School was overwhelmed by the generosity shown for its annual auction fund-raiser on Sept. 22. “Pirate” Rick graciously gave up the mike this year to Moss Nipkau, who kept the small but supportive crowd laughing and out-bidding each other all afternoon.

Neighbors brought and bought a variety of items, including unique pieces of art and local history- some at a bargain price, others far above face value! The Salmon Creek Volunteer Fire Dept. put up and put away the school’s tent, and Chief Joe fired up a BBQ lunch for the audience. Brian B. hauled away recycling and trash on his own. Despite having a smaller event than usual, we received more than projected in contributions! That’s a relief as we start a financially thin year.

Please join us in showing your appreciation to these businesses: Miranda Gardens Resort, the Chapman Ranch, Tosten’s Sawmill, Randall Sand and Gravel, Sparrowhawk Construction, Trim Scene Solutions, The Security Store, Wyckoff’s, Sylvandale, Dazey’s, Chautauqua, and Pierson’s Building Supply.

We are grateful to our dear Salmon Creek neighbors who helped us set up, clean up, sold raffle tickets, donated items and bid on everything. If you donated to this or any other SCCS event and did not get a thank you letter with the school’s 501(c)3 # for tax-deductible purposes, please contact me at the school. If you’d like to help support our independent school another way, designate us as a recipient of your rewards points when you use a Ray’s All Access Card, or check out our wish list on Amazon. Congratulations to Linda Coyle for winning the Bamboo Quilt and thank you, Southern Humboldt!
