Rotary auction items going and gone for charity

Bargains were everywhere at Rotary auction

DERRY — There is something for everyone every summer at this event.

From massive stacks of books and toys to furniture, sports items and household goods, the annual Derry Rotary Club auction Saturday gave those looking for a bargain plenty of choices.

Longtime auctioneers and club members Bob Gorham and Art McLean took turns on the auction block, selling items with their fast talk and pounding gavel to seal deals.

Happy auction-goers were seen heading to their cars after winning that coveted item — furniture, electronics, or something more interesting like a unique collectible or accent piece.

In addition to the auction, people were able to peruse tables full of other items as part of a yard sale, with no bidding pressure attached.

The Derry Rotary Club has hosted the annual auction for more than 30 years, members noted, and it is the club’s largest fundraiser, raising thousands of dollars each year to support Rotary charities and community causes.
