A night at the CEF/CSA auction
A full day of giving for the Carlisle Public School began with the silent auction Saturday night at the Middlesex School in Concord. Families that came to the preview from 4 to 5 p.m. exclaimed over the creative offerings. Ticket holders for the auction and dinner arrived at 6 p.m. and enjoyed delicious refreshments while writing down bids. The silent auction ended at 8 p.m. and the crowd retired to the dining hall for dinner. When the live auction began, professional auctioneer Al Merry soon had the crowd cheering as each bid topped the previous. After the very successful fundraising, the tables were pushed aside, the band struck up the music and the dancing began.
According to the CEF/CSA auction committee, "Enhancing and enriching the education of our children is the goal of both the CEF and the CSA, and the motivating force behind this event."
