After nearly 50 years in the construction trade, we have decided to downsize. We have sold our home & are moving into smaller quarters; therefore we have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction to sell all listed items to the highest bidder. We invite you to attend our Auction and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time.

Very best regards,

Dick & Joyce Castenholz

NOTE: The Castenholz have led a very active life. They hunted all over North America and this shows in the beautiful trophy room. Their smaller home will not have room for the trophies, tractor, furniture or all Dick’s tools. Come on out for a nice clean Auction of well-kept items. The tractor is ready for the parade and the trophies will make any room more interesting! Joyce has some very nice oak furniture and collectible glassware to add to your collections. Make plans to be in Ravenna on Sat. Oct. 18 at 10:00 AM for the start of this Live Auction.

TERMS: Cash or good check day of auction. Master Card or VISA with 3% service fee. We subscribe to PAY TEC (A NATIONAL CHECK COLLECTION COMPANY)

For your convenience we will have a lunch wagon, port-a-jons & wash-up station.
