FARMINGTON — The Farmington Historical Society will continue the Summer Auction Series at 6 p.m. Thursday June 12, at 118 High St. The preview will begin at 5 p.m.

The auction series began in the summer of 2013 with three monthly auctions. The success of the auctions prompted the society to continue the series and to add a fourth. Auctions are scheduled for the second Thursday in June, July, August and September.

Proceeds are used to continue church building renovations, which will enable use by the public and private organizations. Current renovation projects under way are the expansion of the altar area for use as a performance stage, electrical for performer’s sound systems and heating and air conditioning for the upstairs performance area.

Donation of items for the auctions are being accepted from 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays at 126 High St. (the Octagon House). Consignment items are also accepted. For large item or large quantity pickup, call auction coordinator Dan Maxham at 491-8635 to schedule.
