The silent auction will begin at noon and will continue until 5 p.m.
All proceeds of

Pat, as she has been an active community member, and was a bus driver for
Duneland Schools for 37 years. She lost her husband Jack this past November.
On January 13, 2017, her home was damaged by an electrical fire. Much of the
house sustained severe water and smoke damage and will have to be repaired.
Many household appliances and other items were lost as well.
Tickets can be
purchased at the door or in advance at VFW Post 2511 in Porter.
