    To place a bid for the auction, call the United Way office at 728-2056. At that time, the office will record the bidders’ name and amount of bid. The starting bid is $500. The person with the highest bid on March 31 will be the proud owner of the Bison.
    Bill has been hosted by more than 50 businesses in Adams County throughout the last nine months, displayed at the Indiana State Fair and hosted by North Adams Community Schools, Adams Central Community Schools and South Adams Community Schools.
