Silent Auction Appeal for Environmental Education

Silent Auction Appeal for Environmental Education

On the evening of Thursday May 19, 2016 our annual MVFN Spring Gathering at the Almonte Civitan Hall will take place, featuring a dinner, guest speaker and a silent auction to raise funds for MVFN’s Environmental Education program.

At this time we are sending out an appeal to all our members and the local community for donations of quality items, new, used or even antique, for this silent auction. This year we would like to place an emphasis again on services and experiences as auction ‘items.’ Popular examples from last year include guided hikes on the Alvar, birding expeditions, picture framing, monthly flower bouquets, and even exciting sailing trips! We welcome more creative offerings like these with a nature theme:  interpretive guided hikes to other unique natural sites in the area, a consultation on wildlife friendly landscaping, other yard work/landscaping help, bird house installations . . . or other.

If you would like to donate, please email Bob Smith at  (note the underscores between bob_o­_links) or phone and leave a message at 613-624-5307 regarding your item. We will contact you as to when and where your item can be delivered or picked up.

Thank you for your support of MVFN’s Environmental Education
