On the last Friday of November, St. David’s held our annual Silent Auction and Dinner. Before, during and after the meal, people bid on auction items – popular are gift baskets with consumables! Each year a different charity is chosen to receive half of the proceeds.
This year, we chose to support a clean water project in Buyé diocese. The Rev. John Gee gave a compelling presentation about improvements to water management so that people could access uncontaminated water, thus reducing the incidence of water-borne illness. Inspired by the presentation, we raised $1,940 towards clean water projects in Buyé!
