The Abominable Snowman was one of the many trees digitally auctioned this year for the Valley County HOPE Project. The HOPE Project Festival of Trees online auction was a big success according to organizers. Thirty-three items were sold for a total of $3,820. An additional donation from an area citizen put the total for the day at over $7,000 raised. The money is used to help cover medical expenses incurred by Valley County residents.
