Due to a recent surge in Covid cases , last week the governor of Illinois designated our region (which includes LaHarpe) as a hot spot for Covid 19. Gatherings are now restricted to under 25 people or less. In response to the governors order, we are changing our annual OFOP live auction November 14th to an online format. Jim Sullivan will be calling the auction via livestream, where viewers can bid from the comfort and safety of their own home. More information, including the link to the site to view and bid will come in the next few days.
We are also changing our auction start time to 6pm this year for online viewers convenience and availability. We’ll still have an incredible collection of items, which are currently flowing in! If you have an item or items you’d like to donate, we would ask this year that you bring your donated items earlier than the morning of so that we have time to capture photos and label goods prior to Saturday for bidders viewing.
We have designated TWO locations as drop-off points–both in LaHarpe. The Johnson Agency at 600 W Main St will be collecting items from 8am-4:30pm next Monday through Friday. The LaHarpe Christian Church has also volunteered their facility as a drop-off location, specifically on Thursday and Friday, from 8am-7pm both days. If you’re dropping items at the church Thursday or Friday, please use the East door and leave your donation in the foyer. A sign will be there to identify the proper drop spot.
Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to a fruitful auction! Please stay tuned for further information regarding the online directions.
Auction: Online at 6pm, Saturday November 14th.
