NORTH BENNINGTON — Friends of the Village School is hosting an online auction May 13-27, as well as a live auction preview event.
The VSNB auction site is full of deals, including gift certificates for Bennington Bookstore, Henry’s Market, Doula consultation, summer tutoring, custom cakes and more; experiences like a half-day fly fishing with a Green Mountain angler and a guided hike to Mount Monadnock for up to 6 people by John Ulrich and Marlene Driscoll; culinary offerings, including gift certificates to many local restaurants, an exclusive wine pairing dinner for 10 at Pangea, and more. The school also offers the opportunity to own an old wooden classroom chair from North Bennington Graded School. The chairs were hand painted/decorated by local artists Charlotte Lyons and Sandra Magsamen and by VSNB students under the guidance of VAE teaching artists.
On May 13 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the public is invited to view the many products on offer at the Online Auction Preview event, held in the school gymnasium on School Street in North Bennington (masks encouraged). Volunteers will also be available to demonstrate how the online aspect of the auction works. In addition, our 4th graders will hold a sale of perennials and sunflowers to support Ukraine’s efforts. At the same time, the Left Bank Gallery, just across the street on Bank Street, is hosting an art opening for all students, showcasing amazing artwork created by students from the Village School under the guidance of teaching artists from the Vermont Arts Exchange.
