Many members of the community joined together at the Licking United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall for a fun evening of food and friendly competition at Saturday’s benefit for Cynthia Floyd. The food included ham and beans, chili or broccoli cheese soup, served with cornbread or a roll and dessert. The friendly competition heated up between 6:30 and 7:00 p.m., with the silent auction ending then. Final rounds were made by several during the last minutes, trying to ensure they would leave with their desired items. From quilts to sweet treats, there was something to tempt everyone.

This quilt containing photos of yesteryear in Licking was donated to be part of the silent auction. The quilt maker wasn’t known. The Licking News is interested in learning the identity of the quilt maker.
