Looking to reduce your collection of Schnauzer collectibles? Are you a talented artist or craftsperson? Consider donating items for the annual MCKC Auction and Garage Sale being held at the member meeting and reception on Saturday Oct 5th. Money raised through this fun activity is designated for the Trophy Fund.

It would be appreciated if members contact me by mid September (sooner is better!) with a list of items they want to donate. Photos and an estimated value are appreciated so we can pre-price items.

If you are not attending MCKC but want to donate items, a member in your geography that is coming to the show may be able to bring your items.
