This year’s district conference silent auction is being dubbed “Baked Goods, Blankets, and Baskets." For the 2023 auction, which raises funds for district ministries, the organizers would like only baked goods, pies, cookies, and other tasty treats, as well as handmade blankets, quilts, wall hangings, and other handmade items. Congregations or individuals can also put together a themed basket, such as a movie night basket or a Thanksgiving or Christmas basket. “We understand you are used to bringing a much wider variety of items, but this year we just want these specific items,” auction organizer Rick Koch said.
