In total, 42 decorated trees and other items were auctioned raising $4,700 to be divided among the Logan County Friendly Senior Center, Bellefontaine First Church of God’s Happy Saints volunteer group, Heartland’s resident activity fund and the Bellefontaine chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, Michele Jones of Heartland reported. The top single item was a tree made by Hayes Godwin in memory of grandfather Charlie Godwin that sold for $410. A golf bag donated in honor of the late Logan County Sheriff’s Deputy Robert Summers was back twice and generated more than $600 for the FOP’s annual Shop with a Cop effort to provide children who have lost a loved one an opportunity to buy Christmas gifts.
