Ah yes, it’s almost time for the annual SAMOA White Elephant Auction, the club’s annual fundraiser, luncheon and jolly good time to be had by all thank you very much.  

What is a “white elephant” you ask?  Well, according to the tricky dictionary it is “a possession no longer wanted by the owner but difficult to dispose of.”  So, look around your garage/house and find a few new or lightly used Mini-related items (no broken or worn out stuff please) that you or your Mini have grown out of, wrap them to hide their identity and bring them for auction. Proceeds go to SAMOA!

Be sure to bring cash or a personal check to pay for those thrilling white elephants you’ve purchased.  The club will provide dogs, chips, soda and water. Feel free to bring a potluck dish and an alternative beverage if you like. Bring chairs.

“Listen up!  Our 2019 SAMOA White Elephant Auction is on the calendar for January 26, and, as most of you know this is one of my MOST favorite events of the year!  So, since I love sharing my happiness with each of you and as your 2019 WEA event chair let me extend to you my personal invitation to this fabulous event!  Even though I will miss having the “big-spender trophy” sitting in my office I will be very happy to hand it off!  See you there or you will have some ‘splainin’ to do!” -Hugs, Glenda Larson, Chairman 2019 SAMOA White Elephant Auction, Interim Treasurer and Baby’s mom
