Hopkinsville Rotary Making Gains After Two Nights



The Hopkinsville Rotary Club's 63rd Annual Auction is making gains, with the auction still running behind last year after two nights.  Tuesday night Rotarians sold 103 items to raise 6-thousand 781 dollars, with Castle's Country Store bringing in 567 dollars, the diner and sweet shop netting 2-thousand 237 dollars and the hour and goat club garnering15-thousand dollars. Tuesday night the club raised 24-thousand 586 dollars, bring the two night total to 82-thousand 544 dollars.

Compared to 2012 the auction is running behind by 16-thousand dollars, with the Hour Club doubling what was received on the second night of the 2012 auction. Although the country store was slightly ahead of last year, the auction and sweet shop finished slightly behind 2012 night two totals.  The auction kicks off tonight at 6:30 at the Memorial Building in downtown Hopkinsville, with Auction Chairman Robert Harper saying tonight is school report night.


   
Harper adds all the items on the blue board will be sold tonight, so don't miss the chance to bid on them.


   
Harper says the auction is all about the club's goal to help better educate the citizens of Hopkinsville and Christian County.


   
Rotarians will serve lunch today from 11 until one, with a one dollar discount to administrative professionals. Dinner will be served tonight beginning at five at the Memorial Building.
