Tickets Available and Auction Items Needed for Pre-Holiday Auction

November 22, 2013       6 PM to 9 PM

 

 

Please reserve Friday, November 22nd from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on your calendar and purchase your ticket for Windsor Historical Society’s pre-holiday auction now. This year’s affair will be held at Birch Meadow Banquet Facility at 76 East Dudley Town Road. Tickets are $35 and include a delicious dinner buffet, non-alcoholic beverages, and a cash bar, with music provided by Windsor High School’s prize-winning Jazz Quartet from 6 – 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the Society, Ashley’s Distinctive Jewelry and Gifts at 555 Day Hill Road, Bill Selig Jeweler’s at 161 Broad Street, and at Windsor Federal Savings branch locations.

The pre-holiday auction offers an opportunity to catch up with old friends and new and bid on exciting opportunities like:
     • relaxing getaways at vacation homes and resorts
     • catered private dinners by some of Windsor’s best cooks
     • Culinary goodies delivered to your door
     • restaurant certificates
     • sports and theater tickets
     • exciting themed gift baskets
     • high quality antiques, craft work and jewelry
     • high quality children’s gifts
     • “Feel-good” holiday opportunities: sponsoring Windsor families in need, or cost of a bus trip to bring schoolchildren to the Society.

It’s for a good cause: the auction supports the many public programs we offer for Windsor area schoolchildren and adults, and the operation of our historic houses, research library, exhibition galleries, and family learning center.

And it’s certainly not too late to donate an item for our auction if you have something on the list above or another idea!  Just contact Administrative Assistant Liz Henderson at 860-688-3813 x. 102 or info@windsorhistoricalsociety.org . Auction donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law, and all auction donors will be acknowledged in the auction booklet.

Snow shovel

Okay, so moving that snow is nobody's favorite job.  But a good shovel makes all the difference, and this one's a beauty.  Light and sturdy, it will speed you through the drifts so you can get on back to the big game.
