Annual Bird House Silent Auction at the Montrose County Fair
Monday July 22 to Saturday July 27: The Montrose Woodworkers Guild will be donating hand-crafted bird houses to be sold by silent auction during the Montrose County Fair. All proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to the Black Canyon Audubon Society. This generous group of woodcrafters creates unique and functional bluebird houses as a project to raise funds for the Black Canyon Audubon Society programs. BCAS members, their friends, and the general public are also invited to construct bluebird houses to be entered in the silent auction; we especially invite entries to the youth division (under age 18). Bring your bird houses to the Woodworkers Guild booth on Sunday, July 21 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. or on Monday, July 22 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. The silent auction will close at noon on Saturday July 27; all winners will be contacted after the auction closes and are expected to come and pay for their winning bird house on Saturday (unless prior arrangements have been made). The entire fair will close on Saturday, July 27th. Volunteer help is needed at the booth during the fair and to help set up the BCAS booth.
