Always a highlight of International Homecoming Festival is the fun and exciting Lion’s Club Auction.  This event takes place in the afternoon on "parade day," this year set for Saturday, August 8th.  

Although many in the Lion’s Club will keep busy raising funds for the group at its Weenie Wagon, parked right on Main Street, a few will move over to the auction site at the parking lot adjacent to The Bank of Maine.  Here, numerous items generously donated by local merchants go up for bid in the live auction.  Of course all the monies raised at both the Weenie Wagon and at the auction go to local charities.


The Lion’s Club Auction is an event surely not want to be missed.  There is something for everyone!
