Herald’s Cabin Fever Auction, Home Show set

CLINTON — For the first time, the Clinton Herald’s Home & Outdoor Show and the Cabin Fever Auction will be held together.

“It’s two events for the price of one,” Clinton Herald Advertising Account Representative Marsha Luedtke-Cackett said about the programs scheduled for Saturday.

Herald Advertising Account Representative Kathy Huizenga agreed it is really a “win-win.” She added that people can begin their day with the auction and then check out the home show.

Both events will be held in the Wild Rose Casino & Resort event center, 777 Wild Rose Drive. The Cabin Fever “instant buys” will run from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., with the live auction beginning at 10 a.m. The home show, which is also sponsored by Turner Appliance, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Both events are free to the public and door prizes are available.

Huizenga said the Cabin Fever Auction has a retail value of $27,000 among its 560 instant buy items and 38 auction items.

A list of the live auction items ran in an advertisement in Wednesday’s Herald.

The home and outdoor show will feature Rose Graves from R&R Farms and Ron Cook with Affordable General Maintenance as speakers. Graves will speak at 10:30 a.m., with Cook following at 11:30 a.m.

A total of 15 vendors will have booths set up at the event. Huizenga said the vendors bring all kinds of things.

“After a long winter, why not (come)? It puts you in the spring spirit,” Luedtke-Cackett said.
