PINE GROVE -- The early March tradition returns to the Pine Grove Fire Hall March 2 with the annual fire department auction.
The 37th annual auction begins, inside and outside the fire hall, at 9 a.m., with a third auction to start later in the morning, organizers said. The auctions continue until everything is sold.
Several hundred items will be on sale includinig antiques, furniture, electronics, household goods, toys, bikes, skis and other sporting goods, hardware, power tools, farm equipment, a boat, and cars.
All proceeds benefit the 30-volunteer department's Emergency Services equipment needs and training.
The auction will be conducted by firefighters with auction training, with help from the Greg Murray family of Odell.
Also on sale are dime coffee, 25-cent popcorn, homemade pies all day, and breakfast foods in the morning and sandwiches and hotdogs later on.
"People can come out, and they don't have to leave to go and eat," said firefighter Ron Guth. "It's a real tradition. The first Saturday in March everyone comes out, says `hi' and hangs out."

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
