The November 2010 annual auction drew our largest crowd ever, with over 240 people in attendance at Pineland Farms in Pownal.  There were many teachers and other MSAD 51 staff present, which always enhances this community event!   Black Tie Catering provided a fabulous meal which attendees enjoyed when they weren't busy perusing the hundreds of wonderful auction items available. Karen Morgan, "Maine's Funniest Mom", was our auctioneer for the evening. Despite the horrible rainstorm outside, people brought their festive attitudes and participated not only in the auction but also in some fun events throughout the night, aided by a group of energetic student volunteers. The students sold $5 Mardi Gras beads as entry tickets into what turned out to be a very robust game of "Stars and Moons" (aka Heads and Tails), and the winner, Bonnie Vance, won an iPod Touch!  Students also sold balloons for $10, which purchasers then popped to win a mystery prize, and raffle tickets with a $2,500 grand prize. Thank you ALL for your tremendous support!
