The Northeast Texas Chapter 416 of the Air Force Association will sponsor an auction at Oak Creek Country Club on Saturday at 2 PM. This is in recognition of the 68th anniversary of the United States Air Force. Many sponsors have contributed unusual item such as glass ware and memorabilia from the Air Force One aircraft, Presidential items, and some items such as golf balls, drink glass sets, men and women’s polo shirts from the Marine One helicopter. The auction is expected to be boisterous but if you like the silent variety then there will be a chance to bid silently. The auction is open to the public. Please bring cash or check. Credit cards cannot be accepted.
Proceeds from this auction go directly to support the chapter’s educational opportunities for Greenville and Rockwall and Hunt County. Scholarships are awarded in the amount of $1,000, $750, and $500 to deserving students in the area. This also supports Teacher of the Year awards and much, much more.
