Auction deal for buyers, not for owners

Man 4 Man Ministries takes over old Gentry’s Cabinets building

(Continued)



Woodworking equipment, wood and partial and complete cabinets went for well under store prices at the six-hour event Saturday. A complete double-sink with cabinet space and drawers sold for $50. A used-jacuzzi sold for $40.

Auctioneer Richard Symmes said part of the reason some of the items sold so low was because they were second-hand. But, he said, there were items that sold for more than $1,000.

“For the age of the equipment, it went very well,” he said. “The machinery was were the money was. The money wasn’t in the wood and cabinets.”

Jerry Doty, a county resident who does woodwork out of his warehouse, found the dust collector he had seen in stores for about $1,000, but for only $300 at the auction. He also bought about three truckloads of wood and glass panels.

“I left him alone for an hour, and I came back and look what happened,” laughed his wife, Jennifer Doty, as she watched her husband and son load the piles of wood.

Canaday said the auction would most likely not achieve the ministry’s goal to own the building “free and clear.” It will continue a capital campaign to raise the funds, he said.

The ministry was founded in 2001, to help men leaving out of prison to adopt and sustain a productive lifestyle. The group has devotional meetings and helps the men find jobs. Canaday said the ministry provides alternative jobs in detailing vehicles, mowing lawns and catering.

“What it boils down to is that a lot of these men haven’t had fathers in their lives and never had anyone teach them how to be a positive influence in their community,” he said, pointing to a 4 percent re-offender rate in Anderson versus the national 65 to 85 percent.

“When a guy gets out, he’s looking for some positive friendships. And that’s what we have.”
