Volunteers needed to go to Beulah Park Auction

Auction, Auction, Auction!

Our summer camps are in full swing and we always need supplies at our camp property.  Our camp director had great success at the first auction at the closed Beulah Park with items for our kitchen and around camp.

The second live auction is happening on Saturday, June 28th at 9:00 AM. This auction will be over at the maintenance shops and will include barn items, vehicles, tools, track and maintenance equipment.  We have some need of these items but we don’t have staff we can spare for the event.

Beulah Park: 3811 Southwest Blvd, Grove City, Ohio 43123

If you are interested in going to the auction in our place, please contact our Camp Director, Connie Coutellier at 740.746.8433.
