When Colborne resident Gene Wile reorganized rooms in his home, Donna Rusaw suggested a “Storage Wars” party be held. Items Gene no longer wanted were concealed within boxes and bags and auctioned off at a party. The event was a great hit. The $500 in proceeds were presented to Colborne Legion Br. 187 President Patti May by Gene on Dec. 7.
