The 2004 auction was a great success, again raising over
|1. Lobsters Our friend Pat White, veteran lobsterman
and former president of the Maine Lobsterman's Association,
will personally pluck a dozen, hand-selected 1 1/2 pound crustaceans
(or if you prefer, 10 2lbers) from the clear, clean waters of

summer party. They'll arrive at your door alive and kickin'
and just hours from the depths of their former home in the Atlantic.

2004. Sincere thanks to Pat and Patty Fiorelli for the donation.

small blue UVEX helmet, a pair of small gray "Hot Fingers" mittens,

coffee or evening cocktail. These extremely comfortable, beautiful
chairs will be a great addition to your garden or summer cottage.
For more information, including pictures, please contact Scott
Beebe at the number listed above.
|8. Golf with Volp Walpole CC. People, this is
not for the faint of heart. You either need to be an All-World
Drinker or be tournament tested. This is your basic Steel Cage
golf tournament, no holds barred. It's a lot of laughs and won't
tie you up for the whole weekend. I beg you not to buy this
for one of your customers and stick me with a 26 handicapper
who is also a teetotaler, unless of course he's a sandbagger
and is really a 12. Along with a thirst you'll need a USGA handicap.
The tournament is usually run on the 1st Friday & Saturday in
October. David Volpe (Volp), will be hosting. Includes golf,
cart, food, liquor, skins, and the money & flight pools. Such
a deal (as long as your liver can take it).

unit description but shows that you are right on the beach).

a pair of Sceneo S200's. These fat carvers are perfect for intermediate

|20. ESTRADA LES PAUL GUITAR. What we have here
is another 60's import blockade knock-off of the famous Gibson
SG (Solid Guitar) Jr. originally designed with Gibson Guitars
by Les Paul. This is one of the Japanese (in this case made
by Suzuki) imitations that caused the import/export blockade
back in the 70's. The Japanese were flooding the US market with
patent protected imitations that were near perfect copies. The
Gibson version was made popular by PETE TOWNSEND and
LYNYRD SKYNRD. Many others, including KID ROCK,
are using this version today. This Japanese copy SG Jr. is in
classic Heritage Cherry Red. It's in great condition, in appearance
as well as the electronics. BID high for this 60's classic axe.
