25…30…35…sold right here!

by on May 9, 2011

On the evening of May 6, the auditorium was jam packed with families attending the Cub Scout Advancement Ceremony where Bobcats, Tiger Cubs, Wolfe, and Bear Scouts all had a wonderful time receiving their awards. The highlight of the meeting was a live auction. Each boy was given 380 dollars of funny money to spend at will. Every family brought objects to be auctioned off: candy bars, dinosaurs, games, fishing poles, stuffed toys, and flashlights were among the items up for bid.

The bidding was fast and furious and of course all done with good sportsmanship!

Thanks for letting us use the great facility. Glad to follow in the scouting tradition embraced by President Hoover.

It was a pleasure for the Hoover Presidential Library to have a wonderful organization like the Boys Scouts use our facility. Next time may I please have some funny money, too…I saw a couple of items I wanted to bid on.
