West Central Bank, Beardstown Main Street, the First National Bank and the Round House Center will sponsor the annual Celebrity Christmas Wreath Auction fundraising event at the First United Methodist Church parlor on Saturday, December 7, beginning at 4 p.m. The church will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for the First United Methodist Church Annual Christmas Tea. The wreaths will be on display until 3 p.m. on that day, so that people may view and place a written bid on wreaths of their choice prior to the auction at 4 p.m. There will be 54 wreaths and swags available for auction.
Wreaths and swags have been sold to local businesses by members of Beardstown Main Street for this event. These wreaths and swags are beautifully and uniquely decorated by the participating businesses and will be presented for the auction.
Two fundraising events are sponsored by Beardstown Main Street each year. The first one, the River Rats Golf Classic, is held on the last Saturday in February and the Celebrity Wreath Auction is held on the first Saturday in December. These fundraisers enable Beardstown Main Street to present events such as the Cruise In, Gospel in the Park, Brown Bag Lunch in the Park, Taste of Beardstown and The Night Time Christmas Parade.
Beardstown Main Street members encourage residents to come and participate in the auction and take home a beautiful Christmas wreath or swag. If you enjoy the events sponsored by Beardstown Main Street and would like to see them continue, please make plans to join us for this auction.
