We had a fabulous turnout for our harvest-themed auction in November of 2009 at Pineland Farms in Pownal. One big draw was our entertainer for the evening, Karen Morgan, who had recently been crowned, "Maine's Funniest Mom".  Karen performed a hilarious comedy routine and also played the role of live auctioneer for the night.  Many great items were available, such as Abaco beach vacations, Patriots, Celtics and Red Sox tickets and a week at a Sugarloaf Condo, to name a few.  The silent auction offered several categories of items from "Kids" to "Arts & Home" to "Teachers & Schools" to "Women's"....close to 1000 items were sold!  Attendees were also able to purchase small pumpkins from our student volunteers, and we thank Skillins Nursery for their donation of 50 pumpkins!  The students also acted as runners for our silent auction and sold tickets to our famous raffle of $2500 cash. It is said that laughing is good for one's health, and this was definitely a very healthy night for the MSAD51 community!
