“These trees will do double duty,” said McLaughlin, who pledged to provide everything necessary to create such a winter scene. “The trees will provide an attractive welcome to those willing to contribute to the Auction and will be returned to the Gilford Rotary and sold to benefit the Rotary’s ongoing charitable efforts.” And continued “ We will be organizing trucks and employees, obtaining lighting from local stores and building temporary tree stands. It’s our way of saying Thank You to our caring community.”

Christmas Trees at the Auction
The Auction receives a great deal of traffic through the rear entrance to the Conference Center as donations are delivered and winning bidders collect Auction items.
New this year is the 2010 Rockin Holiday Bash, a Holiday event to further benefit the Children's Auction. Attendees will be delivered to the Conference Center’s front door via horse & carriage for the Friday night, December 10th dinner and dancing event and enter though the Belknap Landscape Christmas Forest to enjoy the festivities inside. Included are both music by the Eric Grant Band and delicious cuisine by O Steaks and Seafood.
