The Milton-Freewater Chamber of Commerce Oktoberfest dinner and Milton-Freewater Rotary Club's CHAIRity auction Oct. 23 brought in $1,400 for the Rotary Scholarship Fund.
"Well done to all who contributed their talents to the very artistic chairs and mailboxes," Rotary member Robby Robbins said in his Oct. 26 meeting report.
A dozen chairs and 12 mailboxes were painted by local artists and auctioned at the event by Jeff Wallace. Approximately 200 attended the Oktoberfest dinner that preceded the auction.
