If you plan to make bids at the auction, you should plan to arrive as early as 4:30 pm in order to get a proper bidder number. After that, you can then stroll around the Civic Center, and browse the many items available for both the live and silent auctions.

On the Cullman Rotary Club Facebook page you can get a sneak preview of some of the items that will be available. Images will be posted for preview there right up to auction time.

The silent auction runs from 5:30 to 6:15 pm; the live auction starts at 6:45 pm. Admission to the auction is 100% free.
