Copake Auction will hold its 30th Bicycle & Transportation auction Saturday November 13th at 10AM. The gallery usually holds this event every spring but due to the pandemic the gallery held one in in June and now another in November. According to Seth Fallon the material came in and we had to make a decision so we decided to go ahead with it now other than storing until spring.
