Our guest speaker for the evening was
Doulass White of A-1 Auction Service in Orlando. A-1 is
now 20 years old and Doug holds several auctions a year
and also does a show in North Carolina. He brings all of
that experience to his appraisals of the antiques and
collectables that we brought. Nobody brought anything
that would make them independently wealthy but we did
hear some high three figure numbers. Items included
books, jewelry, china, glassware and some old battery
chargers and radios. The photo at the right shows Doug
describing some very ornate glassware brought in by
Marilyn Knight. As usual, it was a very interesting
evening and Pastfinders would like to thank Doug and his
wife Paula for spending the evening with us.
33 Pastfinders and guests present at the annual Christmas
Dinner held at the Crown and Shield restaurant on the
Monarch Golf Course at The Royal Highlands in Leesburg.
Members chose from Prime Rib, Chicken Oscar or Baked
Stuffed Fish and topped it off with key Lime Pie.
We started with a blessing offered by
Marilyn Knight. After dinner we had a drawing for the
gifts that were brought by the officers. We also awarded
two fresh baked loaves of bread donated by Joan Gathings
and four of the five flower arrangements that were made
by Dotty Dill. And following tradition, we awarded a
year's membership which went to Alden Knight.
