Boy Scout Troop 380 of Hampstead will have its annual fund-raising auction March 5 at Snyder's Auction House on Mott Avenue in Hampstead. The auction will begin at 10 a.m. and end when all the merchandise is sold.
This year's auction is the eighth for the troop, which is sponsored by Wesley United Methodist Church.
Area businesses and restaurants are contributing new goods and services for the auction, which will feature sports collectibles ranging from cards to team hats, tools and accessories, and household goods.
Local merchants have donated gift certificates for items ranging from pizzas to oil changes. Individuals are donating new and used household goods. There also will be some surprises.
Proceeds will be used to purchase camping equipment to help send boys to summer camp and to finance the troop's community service projects. To donate items, call Scoutmaster Tom Osborne, 239-7380.
