Pre-Holiday Goods and Services Auction

 

Windsor Historical Society’s major fundraiser this year is a festive, pre-holiday auction on November 21, 2008, starting at 7 p.m. in the community room of the Windsor Public Library at 323 Broad Street with wine, cheese, and delectable desserts.  Auction committee members have solicited some truly wonderful items from generous individuals and community business people.

 

Take this opportunity for the holiday season to find a special gift or an experience to be treasured and remembered.   Tickets are available for $20 at the Society’s offices at 96 Palisado Avenue (Route 159); call 860-688-3813 x 102 for more information.  They can also be purchased at Ashley’s Distinctive Jewelry and Gifts, Day Hill Village Shoppes.

 

If you wish to place a bid but cannot be present at the auction, please e-mail Christine Ermenc cermenc@windsorhistoricalsociety.org by November 20th.  Include brief description of auction item, maximum amount of bid, credit card type, number, expiration date, security code and exact name listed on front of card.  If your bid is successful, you will be charged a $20 processing fee in addition to your successful bid.  This is an auction with no sales tax and no buyer’s premium.  

 

Auction purchases support Windsor Historical Society’s programs for schoolchildren and adults, and the operation of the Society’s historic houses, research library, exhibition galleries, and family learning center.
