Annual Community Auction
Trenton / Jones County
Annual Community Auction This is the 39th year of this eagerly anticipated event. It is held on the second Saturday each January (third Saturday, if rain) at the American Legion grounds where there's lots of room to see all the items for sale: farm equipment, vehicles, tools, antiques, general merchandise and, occasionally, "junk". Of course, it may not be junk to YOU! There's also a flea market held on the grounds. And it wouldn't be an event without lots of that down home cooking like BBQ pork and chicken grilled over oak coals. Baked goodies for dessert, too. There is a $5 fee for each item ticketed for sale and the Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad, who sponsor the event, collect 10% of each item's sale price (with a maximum of $100 for any single item) as a fund raiser for the groups. No fee to attend. Come on down and enjoy the whole day. Bring a friend or two with you! Parking is nearby.
