Wine and beer event will feature unique Silent Auction items

SAYRE – The Celebration at the Station wine and beer tasting event slated for Wednesday, May 18 will include a Silent Auction of several items including a vintage model train set, framed puzzle, two rounds of golf and one-of-a-kind cookie jar.

CAPTION: A one-of-a-kind cookie jar featuring the bandstand at Howard Elmer Park will be among the many items available at the Silent Auction at the Celebration at the Station.

Tickets for the event are available from the museum and any board member. The cost is $20. The event will be held at the Sayre Historical Society located in the Lehigh Valley Railroad Station in downtown Sayre. Hours are 5 to 7 p.m.

Admission includes food samplings and raffle tickets plus wine and beer tastings from Glenora Winery, Bluestone Brewery and Skerpon’s Beverage. The museum will be open for tours.

The Cookie Jar that slated for the Silent Auction is the only one of its kind, according to museum volunteers. The hefty jar has an image of the Howard Elmer Park bandstand on the front and a description of the Sayre landmark on the back. The description reads:

“Built in 1885-86 in the center of City Park, renamed Howard Elmer Park in 1911, with money raised through public subscription from the citizens of Sayre. Thus it has been a Sayre landmark even before the incorporation of the Borough of Sayre in 1891. The bandstand has served as a site for civic ceremonies, political rallies, band concerts, weddings, visits from Santa Claus and holiday celebrations.”

Other items include a framed puzzle, a Kurt’s Whoopie Pie gift basket, a dinner/movie/dessert package, a handmade baby quilt, homemade quilted table runners, and more.

The museum is open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. Call 570-882-8221 or email the museum at sayrehistorica@yahoo.com for more information.
