HALLSVILLE — The Hallsville Community Development Association held its 19th annual benefit dinner and auction Saturday at the Bob LeMone Building.
Volunteers poured out from the community. The auctioned items included paintings, ammunition and propane. Kids from the local 4H chapter helped distribute food and drinks, two men spent 12 hours cooking four pigs for the dinner, and families brought an assortment of baked goods for dessert.
Many of the people at the auction were there to show support for the community.
"The community's great. When you need something, the community pulls together," said Kyle George, who volunteered his time to help with the auction. "That's what a small town is all about."
The money earned will go to the Hallsville Fairgrounds and will be spent on more concrete flooring in the Bob LeMone Building.
