ROCKLAND – Trekkers invites you to mark your calendars, get your shopping shoes on, and join them for a great Community Auction! Now in its tenth year, this event continues to help students fundraise towards their annual dues and supports Trekkers programs for local 7th - 12th grade students.

This year, there are a few changes: it will take place at the Rockland Elks Club for the very first time. There will also be extended hours, a “Buy it Now” sale, and free entry (no passed food this year, but there will still be a pie sale)!
