PARIS — The Swingin’ Bears will hold its first-ever Silent Auction during the dance from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, May 11, with Mainstream and Plus dancing, at Oxford Hills Middle School Cafeteria, 100 Pine St., South Paris.

Husband and wife team Kip and Linda Moulton will be the caller and cuer for the dance. Admission for dancers is $8. Those who do not square dance are invited to attend at no charge.

The public is invited to attend and bid on the 20-plus items with bidding to take place until 9 p.m. At that time the winners will be announced, and top bidders need to be present when the announcements take place.
