(Le Mars) — Even though there isn’t going to be a Plymouth County Fair this year, there still will be the auctions associated with the fair. The traditional three auctions include the quilt auction that benefits Life Skills Training Center, the wood carving, belt buckle and toy truck auction with proceeds helping the Plymouth County Fair, and the 4-H and FFA animal
auction with premiums going to help the 4-H and FFA exhibitors. Bruce Brock with Brock Auction Company of Le Mars, has in the past served as one of the auctioneers for all three auctions. The Brock Auction Company has stepped up to offer assistance so that each of the auctions will take place, although those auctions will be conducted on-line instead of having a live auction.
Brock explains the auctions will take place on-line.
Austin Popkin, an associate with Brock Auction, explains how to submit bids online for the woodcarving auction as well as the Life Skills Quilt Auction.
Brock tells of some of the wood carvings by Blair Smith and Scott Tobin from the Westfield and Akron area that are already featured on the Brock Auction website.
Another wood carving is a bench that will have special features.
The commemorative belt buckles feature The Browns musical family as this would have marked the 20th year the Browns have performed at the Plymouth County Fair. This year’s toy truck honors the employees of Titan Machinery.
We will feature additional comments from Bruce Brock regarding the fair auctions in future news updates.
