A couple of people who donated items for the sale bought back some of their own donations. And then, near the end of the sale, packages of buns, chicken sandwich spread, and potato salad left over from the meal served earlier were put on the auction block. One unusual item creat- ed by Jim Erickson for tlJe auction came with a big red sold tag on it. This item has a history with the auxiliary auction, because it has appeared on the auction for a number of years. Buyers keep it for a year and then donate it the next year. Digger Phelps was the top bidder on the piece this year. Will he break with tradition and keep the special piece? Plan now to attend next year's auction to see if Digger is willing to part with his purchase and follow tra- dition.
