No time to be Silent!

The Fall Art Show and Sale committee is looking for volunteers, businesses, and arts groups to supply seven more theme boxes for the silent auction. To date, the committee has received pledges for 43 of the 50 boxes they are hoping for.  Seven more are needed by September 6.

The silent auction reflects the theme of the art show: “Outside the Box”. Visitors to the two-day event can bid for boxes of goodies. Each box contains related items : gardening, teatime, bath and beauty, crafts, automotive, travel, office supplies, and so on. Many volunteers, delighted with the idea, have offered to fill a box. The committee just needs seven more. The proceeds from the boxes help to offset the high costs for mounting the Fall Art Show and Sale, helping to keep the event in the black.

Don’t want to fill a whole box?  Arts council member Val Friesen is inviting others to help him fill his “home preserves” box. Val is a great gardener and canner so this box is sure to be hotly bid for!

Contact Linda Nunweiler to donate your home canning, or to fill your very own box. Out of town? Email olivercac to find out more about the silent auction.

The Fall Art Show and Sale is on Saturday October 1 and Sunday October 2. The silent auction will run both days, concurrent with the show and sale.  Scroll down to see the poster for the Fall Art Show and Sale….
