 We are having our fall quarter paddle auction on Sunday October 29th. Doors open at 11am, auction begins at noon. You must be 18 or older to participate! We will have our bar and kitchen open for refreshments.


What is a Quarter Paddle auction?


Vendors will donate baskets/items to the Legion and you will bid on any baskets or items that you would like.


Baskets/items are valued from $25-$100. Every person will buy a Paddle for $5 and $3 for every additional Paddle.


If you're interested in bidding, you will give the worker .25, .50, .75 or $1 per paddle and then raise your paddle. The auctioneer will then pick a ball and if the number on the ball matches your paddle and you placed a bid, then you win!!
