GBW Auction

Hello to the List -

I'd like to remind everyone that The Guild of BookWorkers is just ten days
away from its fifth annual Auction in conjunction with the 'Standards of
Excellence Seminar' in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I encourage everyone to check
your closets, under your workbench, in the attic, etc., and consider making a
donation to a very worthy cause.  Not only is The Guild of BookWorkers a
nonprofit organization, but we are happy to say that part of the proceeds of
lasts years auction have been earmarked to sponsor THREE scholarship
recipients to attend this years event. And best of all - we are again honored
to have Mr. Bill Drendel serving as our illustrious (and humorous) auctioneer!

Following is just a sampling of past donations to spark your imagination and
get you thinking about what YOU might have to offer.  At the bottom of this
notice I have listed the name and address of our volunteer in Utah to which
all donations be sent, but because I personally prepare advance placards with
brief descriptions, kindly e-mail me a BRIEF description along with your best
guess of the items' value so I can take care of advance paperwork.  With
barely ten days to go, please mail or UPS your donations to Helen Peters
within the next few days.

Here is a brief list of some of our past donations to spark your imagination:

Limited Editions Books                    Books in Sheets
