Erwin elephants up for auction, more popular than ever
ERWIN — The town of Erwin is preparing to say goodbye to the herd of brightly painted elephant statues that have been attracting attention locally and nationally since spring.
Seventeen, two-foot-tall concrete elephant statues on display throughout downtown Erwin will go up for bid in a silent auction to be conducted Oct. 28-Nov.1 at Erwin Town Hall.
Bids will start at $150 and all proceeds will go to The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald.
