Friday Evening Auction – Brethren Disaster Relief Auction

These things would be auctioned later in the day and on Saturday morning.

2Earl Fahnestock was busy receiving and organizing items that had arrived for auction.

DSC_7802This is my photographer friend, John Minnich. He has been doing this for many years.

A few years ago he couldn’t be here and asked me to fill in for him. The next year I was asked to stay as his assistant, as it is difficult for one photographer to always be where things are happening.
