The ACO Port Hope Live Auction team is excited to bring you the first live auction since “before times”. (Image above, details from original painting by Darcy Proctor, for auction.)

To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Port Hope ACO Branch, cake will be served around noon. Refreshments will be available for sale. There will also be a Port Hope Publications table with books, the ACO Port Hope Colouring Book, sets of photo cards, posters, and the original Architectural Terms booklet, all for sale by suggested donation. So bring your loonies, toonies, and small bills to get some deep bargains on great ACO publications.

Most importantly, Lee Caswell will be hosting a Port Hope Antiques Roadshow booth where you can learn about a special item in your home. How it works: bring some photos of a treasure (or the treasure itself if it is portable) to show Lee Caswell, an antiques expert.  He will tell you about the history and time period of your artifact. Suggested donation $10.00 The Roadshow booth will be open during the preview and closes at 12:45, so come at 11 to avoid disappointment.
