The Navy Bean Silent Auction Committee would like to thank everyone that visited or donated to the Auction which was held at the City Administration Offices (City Hall) and the Riverfront Pavilion during the 2012 Navy Bean Festival.
THANKS TO everyone who requested or made donations, helped with set up of the Silent Auction at either location, manned the booth and of course the individuals that actually bid on the items!
Also thanks to City of Rising Sun and Rising Sun Municipal Utilities---elected officials, board members and staff for their patience throughout the festival and to Councilwoman Jillian Nead for her time and support. Thanks to Cory Clark for never questioning just doing what was asked. Thanks to Street Commissioner, Paul Bovard and Street Dept helpers.
Thanks to the Ohio County Community Foundation for supporting with the non-profit status and to Deb Cappel and the 2013 Prom Committee. Also thanks to the good people on the Navy Bean Committee for having faith in us and in the potential success of this venture!
