The Raquette Lake Volunteer Fire Department will hold its annual fundraising auction on Saturday August 12th starting at 6:00 p.m. on the “village green” in Raquette Lake .  The yearly event brings together hundreds of items donated by local supporters including boats, restaurant meals, tools, furniture, appliances, donated pizzas and much, much more.

This year we will have two auctioneers who will relieve each other when they need a break from the hectic pace.  As usual there will be hot dogs sold by our volunteers.  In another new addition bidding numbers will be available to those bidders who want to run a tab and provide identification.

Because of a large donation of many items by very generous supporter, the Saturday night auction will be preceded on Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to Noon by a yard sale format sale of those donated items.  Donations of valuable items for the auction can be delivered to the Raquette Lake village green all day Saturday August 12th or you may leave a message at the Raquette Lake Fire Station by calling 315-354-4644 or by emailing RLFDauction@GMail.COM and describing what you have and where to pick it up.

Finally the bidders and volunteers ask you to please leave your pets at home for their safety
