BOGGSVILLE BOX SOCIAL AND PIE AUCTION: We had an old-fashioned box social and pie auction this past Saturday night. Thanks to all those that took the time to support Boggsville events and fundraiser. It was great family fun and our 10-year-old auctioneer, Kree Wallace, did a great job with the assistance of Gary Pritchard. The dance floor made its debut and is awesome. Thank you, Vivid Tomlin, for making the floor! The box suppers that were sold were unique and attractive, and most important - delicious. Several homemade pies were auctioned off and the homemade ice cream by Linda Bourne was scrumptious! Thanks to Larry and Linda Bourne and others that work so hard to make these events possible. Next big event – Boggsville Days Oct. 14-15. You won’t want to miss this one!
