Photos #1: Grace Christian School auction ... good friends, fellowship, & BBQ

Last weekend was the annual Boots and Bandana Grace Christian auction in Staunton. Each year hundreds turn out to bid on auction items to raise money, enjoy BBQ, and fellowship with friends. 

On the gym floor at the school's Activities Center, former Del. Chris Saxman was talking with former Augusta County Republican Committee Chairman Kurt Michael as Michele Saxman (right) stood nearby. Sitting on the bleachers, I zoomed in for a photo. 

Busted! They spied my camera across the floor.

Cowboy hats were in abundance ...

... as were boots ...
... along with plenty of bluegrass entertainment.

Some well-known names donated items for the auction.

The Saxmans took out a full-page ad in the auction book.

Chris looks across the gym at the action on the auction floor.

Michele Saxman was watching the bidding. It was good to see both Saxmans as well as other friends. SWAC Husband and I have been enjoying this event for years.
