Thank you for your support of the Mid­ Atlantic District Disaster Response Auction by placing an ad in last year’s 2020 Auction Booklet. With the 2020 Auction cancelled due to the pandemic, the auction booklet was not used. Planning is underway for the 2021 Auction to be held on November 13 at the Carroll County Agricultural Center in Westminster, Maryland. In an effort to be good stewards, the auction committee has decided to make use of last year’s booklet, adding supplemental pages specific to the 2021 Auction.
