Pikes Peak Historical Society announces their annual auction Saturday, Oct. 19, at 2 p.m., at Lake George Charter School’s gym. Viewing of items begins at noon. While you are viewing the items, you are welcome to enjoy a homemade pulled pork sandwich with a drink and cookie for a $5 donation to the Student Council and the “Academy” (sixth to eighth grades) of LGCS.

This auction is the major fundraiser for the PPHS, a non-profit organization which maintains two free museums in Florissant, the museum on Teller County Road 1 and the Schoolhouse Museum located at Teller County Road 31 and Wildhorn. PPHS also provides free educational programs throughout the year and other events funded by membership dues and donations.

A large variety of items will be offered for purchase; everything from a 1250-gallon septic tank pump-out,  gift certificates, food items, lift tickets and lift ticket/spa packages, skiing gift certificate, golf at Mount Massive, antiques, gemstones, mineral specimens, Navajo blankets, Japanese vases, art work, collectibles, pet care and boarding, ladies’ haircare, manicures, and pedicures, and a guided Teller History Tour, to name a few.

Join friends and neighbors as PPHS member Dave Mula performs the duty of auctioneer for an exciting afternoon. Credit cards are accepted, as well as cash or check donations.
