Chenango County Habitat for Humanity (CCHH) invites you to a "Paddle Party" otherwise known as a "Quarter Auction". Thursday, October 18, 2018, starting at 5:30 p.m., there will be a fun benefit fundraiser held in the Norwich High School cafeteria for approximately 50 donated items!

This fun auction will feature many wonderful items and gift certificates donated to Habitat for this fundraiser. There are manufactured items, hand crafted pieces, baked goods, green plants, and even deer trophies. Some of the artisans whose work will be offered are Kathy Bullis, Audrey and Harold Johnson, Joe Loparco, Annie Simpson, and Bob Yack to name a few. There will be ceramics, house wares, accessories, toys, pillows, maple products, books, and more. A few stand-out items that may catch your (discerning) eye are a very collectible "Classics Illustrated" comic book; a brand new winter coat; a big jar full of candy; a woven caned stool; a fleece small dog/cat bed; a quilted wallhanging, and a number of beautiful lathe turned hardwood pieces.

...don't worry. Its part auction and part raffle. Very simply, you pay a $5 admission and receive 2 paddles with numbers on them. Bring lots of quarters for items you want to try to get. If your number is drawn, you win! If you run out of quarters, there will be rolls of quarters available for purchase at the event. You may win some very awesome items at great prices.

Proceeds benefit CCHH's current house build in Sherburne and small works projects. Habitat for Humanity offers “a hand up, not a handout”. Your pledges help Habitat make dreams come true by helping to provide affordable housing to families in Chenango County. Call Audrey Johnson (607) 843-6249; email: for more info.
