Letter to the Editor – Bouquet for Peter Ross Auctions – Jim Althouse – Cornwall Ontario – December 16, 2009

The family involved in the Peter Ross Auction Service showed the true spirit of the Christmas season on Saturday December 12th.

At lunch time during an auction at their establishment in Osnabruck Center, the auctioneer paused between items for sale and announced to all those in attendance that his family members had prepared, and would be serving a lunch, free of charge!

Presumably this was a thank you to their regular clients, and newcomers such as I just happened to be fortunate to share.

The auctioneer continued to say that a jar would be on the table to accept donations for the Agape Center, if anyone wished to donate. Furthermore he stated that what ever was donated, the family run auction center would match, dollar for dollar!

A large and delicious meal was provided to all in attendance! The members of the family and staff even went so far as to personally check with seniors and those with mobility difficulties and served them where they sat.

Everyone and every business could take a lesson from the members of the Peter Ross Auction Services family.
