The Medomak Valley Land Trust’s third annual auction fundraiser is set for 5-10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, at Cider Hill Farm on Main Street in Waldoboro.

The event will feature Steelin’ Thunder, a steel drum band, to get the night off in Caribbean beat, and the Ale House String Band to finish the evening, as well as a lobster bake and a buffet with jerk chicken and other calypso tastes and will feature both a live and silent auction.

“What’s especially exciting this year is the breadth of the donations,” Executive Director Daniel Ungier said in a news release from the trust. Waldoboro Shellfish Committee member Glen Melvin will offer a hod of just-dug clams to one lucky bidder, while another local clammer will offer to teach someone how to locate the holes and dig for clams on Sampson Cove. There also will be a freezer-ready 40-pound lamb from a local farmer.

The live auction will include many other items, including a one-week stay in a six-bedroom historic house in Friendship.

Kaja Vielleux, of Thomaston Place Auction Galleries, will run the live auction and has donated an item from his galleries for the event.

Pre-bidding is available online at

Tickets cost $75 in advance or $80 at the door. Proceeds will ensure the land trust can continue to steward and preserve land.
