RADIO-TV AUCTION: For many years (1962-1990) the Club held an auction on the local CBS television station (then located and broadcasting from its studio on Britt Road (now the local office of Comcast) and on WSTU radio. The auction was held for 28 years as a radio-tv auction before switching to a live auction when the area lost the CBS station and its broadcast facilities. In the last year, a live auction was held at the Lyric Theatre. The radio-tv auction was held on 2 consecutive nights, a Wednesday and a Thursday. Full page ads in local newspapers gave residents a list of the items for auction, all of which had been donated by local merchants and citizens.
