  1. Lively bidding tonight for the lovely donated items for the silent auction. We snacked on delicious food, and waited for the live auction, which initially raised $1700 (to be matched by a donor over $1000). Congrats to PCOA for another fine auction, and their committed work to help Seniors in our community. Former PCOA Executive Director Jim Murphy was present tonight.
