Society wants your donations of western collectibles

Have a western collectible item you wouldn’t mind donating to a worthy cause? Contact the South Dakota State Historical Society Foundation about the auction planned Sept. 14.

The not-for-profit foundation hopes to raise money for the society at the auction, set for Expo Center in Fort Pierre at 7 p.m. Central.

Lisa Bondy said the foundation is trying to build on the experience of its first auction last year. She is administrative director for the foundation.

Popular items were art, historic firearms, crocks and Western antiques. Bondy can be reached at 605-773-6298 or
