NEHAWKA FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 20, 1:00PM
LUNCH 11:30 -1:00PM
The annual auction held by the United Methodist Church in Nehawka is a tradition which began forty eight years ago! Members and friends of the little white church on the corner in Nehawka come together each year on the Sunday before Thanksgiving Day to raise money for mission work, community support, and general expenses of the church. Gene Sisco, well-known auctioneer from Otoe, has been seeking out the highest bidder for forty two years!
The bidding begins this year on Sunday, November 20 at 1:00 p.m. at the Community Building in Nehawka, but don’t wait until 1:00 to show up! Homemade soups and goodies will be served from 11:30 to 1:00 as people gather to visit, look over the auction items, and catch up all on the news of the townspeople.
Prior to the big day of the auction, members and friends of the church are busy making homemade salsa, spaghetti sauce, or horseradish. Our ladies embroider, crochet, knit, paint, and make purses or other crafts all year to entice bidders and in past years a quilt or two have shown up to bring a nice bid too. The men use their skills to craft homemade items from wood, iron, or other materials.
Numerous attendees can be counted on to not only attend the auction each year, but to bid generously on a homemade gooseberry pie or freshly made homemade noodles. Dr. Bill Schlichtemeier and wife Jeanette make the annual trek to Nehawka in search of Betty Hansen’s homemade cinnamon rolls. Bill’s mother, Helen is famous for her beautiful crocheted baby booties and baby blankets. Jars of fresh canned goods are plentiful, as well as cookies, candies and other treats. You just never know what will show up at the auction, but you can count on there being something for everyone of every age. Sisco is particularly adept at drawing excellent bids from children who are sitting on grandpa’s lap! One never knows how much Grandpa Kermit will bid on a toy truck or tractor.
Those who have been attending the auction for years remember the meat from the locker donated by Howard and Helen Heesch and the eggs and homemade horse radish from Ruth and Wildon Switzer
Services, tools, household items and gift certificates are donated by area businesses and we express our sincere thanks to those who support our church and community. The generosity of many businesses makes this auction the success that it is. A community event which requires the dedication and work of many turns out to be a tremendous fund-raiser, but it’s always more than just a fund raiser. It’s a time of community, a time of laughter, and a time of encouragement. “We raise money for God’s glory” says Pastor Sandy Webster. “The blessings that abound that day are just a bonus”!
This year a unique door prize will be given to some lucky person and for the first year we will also have a table of silent auction baskets and items. A generous vacation package will also be awarded to the highest bidder at a very nice time-share at a location of your choice. A Nebraska quilt will go home with the highest bidder.
All are invited to join in the fun, food, fellowship and fundraising! Come and bid! And bid for a good reason—God’s work in action for the Nehawka community and surrounding area. We hope to see you there as this tradition continues and remains close to the hearts of the people of The United Methodist Church in Nehawka.
