Chair auction, Aug. 29-Sept 11

The DeForest Area Middle School 7/8 Library is in the midst of an exciting renovation that will bring student resources, access, and library furnishing up-to-date. As part of this renovation, the wood library chairs were retired. It was decided that offering them for sale to the public would be a good idea, but offering them to sale as works of art would be an even better idea. A wonderful contingent of creative local artists have transformed 29 of these chairs. We are looking forward to sharing these chairs with the public, fostering some spirited competition to win each chair via a silent auction. All funds raised will be put toward the purchase of furnishings for the 7/8 Library.  Bid on your favorite(s) from August 29 through September 11.
