Christmas Auction raises funds for more than 300 children

Make up shopping day scheduled

DUNCAN — The annual Christmas Auction raised more than $32,000 to help clothe Duncan children. On Saturday, the auction shopping purchased clothes for 305 children (about $100 per child).

Thursday, families who were unable to make it to Saturday’s shopping day will get an opportunity to get clothing shopping in for the remaining children. This make up shopping day will be from 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday at Wal-Mart and Payless Shoes.

The annual auction, which helps raise the funds, took place during the first week of December. The auction has been a Duncan tradition for more than 50 years, having been founded by the Duncan Rotary Club.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
