Longtime Kiwanian Boulton to be honored at 4th auction

ARLINGTON – The annual Kiwanis auction to raise money for scholarships for local kids will again take place on the Fourth of July.

The event takes place at Haller Park.

A silent auction starts things off from 9-10 a.m. The highest written-down bid takes home the item.

Auctioneer Vickey Hilty will be taking bids for live-auction items starting at 10:30 a.m. People register and get a bid number in an effort to win one of the more-expensive items.

Jan Bauer said that the Arlington Kiwanis Club combines with Dollars for Scholars to award money for graduating seniors to get training in a profession or attend college. “Every single cent” goes to the kids, she said. Every dollar raised means “more for the kids.”

A special event will take place at 10:30 in honor of longtime Kiwanian George Boulton, who died recently. His family will be presented with a flag at 10:30 a.m. Anyone interested in donating to that cause may sent funds to the Arlington Kiwanis Club, P.O. Box 356, Arlington, WA 98223. They may also be left for Kiwanis Treasurer Jim Chase at Flowers by George or brought to the auction. For details call Rich Bullene at 360-913-0295 .

Some of the major items at the auction will include:

•Two stay and dine baskets from Angel of the Winds casino

•A special celebration site for up to 30 at Bad Dog Distillery

•Fire truck ride to school

•Vehicle detail and oil changes by the shop at Mission Motors

•Homemade cupcakes by Debora Nelson, homemade pies by Marilyn Oertle and Kay Duskin cheesecakes

•Other homemade items include: Two queen, one Christmas and one small quilts, pot holders, table runners and greeting cards.
