The Mid-Trail Property Owners Association is once again hosting an event to support the essential services of the Gunflint Trail Volunteer Fire Department.

The Mid-Trail event will be Wednesday, August 7, at Fire Hall No. 1, on the Gunflint Trail.

The event starts with the opening of the flea market and boutique at 12:00 and runs until 4:00 p.m. A live auction, with caller Michael Valentini, will begin at 1:30 p.m. under the big tent.

There will be a drawing for the beautiful “Linking Us All Together” quilt (a queen coverlet, measuring 90” x 109”), handmade by the Mid-Trail Quilters Group.

Attendees can also view the Gunflint Trail Volunteer Fire Department’s new ambulance, which will be parked near the big tent.

Another feature of this year’s fundraiser is a book signing with author Robert R. Olson. He will be on hand to sign his book, Two Bucks and a Can of Gas: Model A Adventures on the Gunflint Trail.  Half the proceeds will be donated to the GTVFD. And even more fun, Olson’s Model A truck will be on display. 

Fire Hall No. 1 is at 7500 Gunflint Trail, 28 miles up the Gunflint Trail.

WTIP's Rhonda Silence talked with one of the organizers, Carol Berg, about the event.
