Historic Effingham Society, according to President Monteen Crawford, has a fun filled evening planned for its annual fundraiser and spaghetti supper to be held Saturday evening in the Springfield Methodist Family Life Center at the corner of Cleveland and Pine streets in Springfield.  

The fun begins at 5 p.m. with a silent auction and the live auction will follow at 7 p.m. Admission to the auction is free. A spaghetti dinner with sauce prepared by Chef Nick Mueller and Company is available from 5-7 p.m. Tickets for the meal including a drink are $8 at the door as long as tickets last or in advance at Effingham Museum.  

Drinks and desserts are also for sale by the serving with meringue pies, layer cakes, cookies and brownies on the menu.

Proceeds go toward the HES Living History Site. The community has been generous and the organization appreciates the many items or monetary contributions donated. The photographs provided offer a very small sample of the varied items offered.

Home-baked layer cakes including: coconut, red velvet, lemon cheese, Italian cream, multi-layer chocolate and caramel; and pound cakes will be plentiful along with the Effingham’s famous raisin bread.  

A cruise to the Bahamas, North Georgia mountain getaway, and day trip to Charleston along with gift certificates will please the traveler.  

Furniture includes an oak dining table with chairs, two floor clocks, curio cabinet, china closet and glass or brass lamps for the home. Christmas decorations and themed decorated Christmas trees are sure to catch the eye. Jewelry, gift baskets, gift certificates and collectibles including glassware and collectible knives are waiting for the right bidder.

The hunter will appreciate the free standing deer stand. Win the auction for a DVD player or television. Decorative items offered are pictures, seasonal floral arrangements, plants, wall tapestries and a lovely rug for that special room. Effingham baskets with all Effingham products showcase local favorites.   

Make plans to attend the fundraiser, share the fun at the auction and further the progress of Historic Effingham Society’s Living History Site projects with your support.
