Bidding for Books at Spencer School

On Friday, December 2nd Spencer School (207 Westfield Street, Middletown) will hold its first ever “Bidding for Books”, a goods and services auction to raise money for new library books. Earlier this year, the library was renamed the Jane Tewksbury Chapdelaine Library, in memory of the beloved teacher who passed away in 2009. Unfortunately, many of the books are in dire shape and without funds in the budget for the library, Spencer is looking at creative ways to purchase new books.
The public is invited to preview the items beginning at 6:00 p.m. with both the silent and live auction running from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Some of the great items available include:
  • hand crafted items,
  • local restaurant gift certificates,
  • WOW gym membership,
  • homemade decorated 3-tier cake,
  • vocalist for a wedding,
  • a cooking class,
  • themed baskets,
  • a home gym system,
  • and much, much more.

There will also be an appearance by Ms. Connecticut, who will be donating a signed book to the auction.

We hope the community will come out and help support this great cause!

Thank you,
Gisela Carlson
PTA Secretary
