Silent auction moves to online

Each year, the Louisiana Forestry Association holds a silent auction in conjunction with its annual convention. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual convention had to be canceled for the second consecutive year.

However, with a mini conference set for Nov. 4, the LFA is setting up an online auction, sort of an abridged version.

Bonnette Auctions is handling the online logistics; all you have to do is click and bid! There will be five exceptional items on the auction block. Bidders will have to create an account, which will include payment information, to bid. Bidding begins 8 a.m. Monday, Oct. 11 and ends at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28.

Winners will be announced on Friday, Oct. 29. Items will be able to be picked up at the LFA office after the winning bidders are announced or at the Mini Conference on Thursday, Nov. 4 at the Holiday Inn Alexandria — Downtown.

Here are the items up for bid ...
