Your Wednesday News & Notes

The Auburn Eventing team hosts an online Facebook auction every year and the one for this year just started today! This auction helps with funding for Intercollegiate Champs and hopefully more! There are already have over 70 items in the Facebook album from lessons to photoshoots to hand-painted wine glasses.
