The 20th annual Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum's Fall Gathering will be this Saturday evening, October 12th beginning at 6 o'clock at the Johnson County Fairgrounds.
The annual event features food, libations, silent and live auctions and entertainment, with proceeds going to the museum.
The annual fundraiser is the museum's biggest money-maker, according to Museum Director John Gavin, who tells us what the funds are used for.
Some of the items available for the live and silent auctions include the last available tabletop bronze of “Nate Champion's Last Run” by D. Michael Thomas; a replica of a WWII Army Air Corps bomber jacket; dinner packages; fishing trips; and many other great things to bid on.
In honor of the first meal served 20 years ago, this year's dinner will be the same as it was then, a BBQ featuring ribs and all the fixings prepared by the Caminos and Halls.
Tickets are $30 per person and are available at the local banks, the museum, any museum board member or at the door the night of the event.
