Donating a Clock to NAWCC National Auction
In 2010 my wife Linda learned that our friends, Cathy and Gerry Koolen from Ontario, CAN, would be running the 2010 National Auction in York, PA.
Linda told me that I had to select a clock from my collection and place it in the auction in support of Cathy and Gerry’s efforts.
I protested that I did not like to sell clocks, and she reminded me that I had a significant collection and could afford to part with one or two clocks!
She was right so I relented and selected a Seth Thomas spring driven column and cornice clock for the auction.
In 2011 she convinced me to donate several more clocks for the Kansas City National.
It has now become a yearly tradition to donate a few clocks to the National Auction with proceeds going to the NAWCC. During the past two years we have requested that the auction proceeds be directed to the For All Time 75th Anniversary Endowment and Capital Campaign.
Our wives are generally very patient with our various collecting hobbies and we need to compromise occasionally and follow their suggestion—even parting with a clock a two. I urge members to consider selecting a clock or two from their collection and placing it in the annual NAWCC National Auction. By doing so, members can boost the overall quality of the auction and provide a donation to the NAWCC.
