RANGELEY — The Rangeley Lakes Region Logging Museum will hold its annual fundraising auction at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 4, at the Museum Building, Route 16. Auctioneer Stephen Richard will be at the gavel once again. Everyone is welcome to view the items beginning at 9 a.m.

Due to local merchants, the museum auction will feature a variety of items: gift certificates from local stores, golf passes, adult one-day ski passes, restaurant or motel certificates and savings bonds. Out-of-town businesses have also sent donations.
Many individual donors have already shown their support of the museum
and have donated furniture, dishes, paintings and other items. Local
handmade crafts, specialties of the auction, will once again be up for
bid.
The kitchens of many Rangeley cooks, such as Carol Haley, Beverly Hill,
Betty Millbury and Lynnie Raymond, will be humming as they prepare pies, fudge, banana bread
and other home-baked goods.
Tickets for the fall raffle of a child’s Kawaski 50-cc four-wheeler  and for the winter raffle of a child’s Arctic Cat F-150 snowmobile will also be on sale at the auction.
To donate, call Rodney Richard Sr. at 864-5595, and volunteers will pick up items.
Other events will be held in the 30th anniversary year of the museum. The 25th anniversary knit, crochet and craft sale will open its doors at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 18, and the 29th annual logging festival will be held on Friday and Saturday, July 24 and 25. The museum is open from 11am to 2pm every Saturday and Sunday and by appointment by calling the Richards at 864-5595.
