Wayfinder Schools Auction November 12

Wayfinder Schools’s 30th annual auction is coming right up on November 12, and as long-time auction goers know, this event offers good fun, good food and great deals on everything from luxury vacations to practical household items.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the event, this year’s auction will be held at the Rockport Opera House, and catered by Brevetto Kitchen & Wine Bar. As always, Bruce Gamage will serve as auctioneer extraordinaire.

The auction offers a great chance to get an early start on holiday shopping while supporting a good cause. Some of this year’s items include overnight and weekend get-always, art work, handmade jewelry, restaurant gift certificates, ski lift tickets, schooner tours, and even a cord of wood delivered to your home. Attendees will have the chance to bid on YMCA memberships, chamber concert tickets, a ride on the DownEaster, an overnight on Monhegan Island and more.

The silent auction will begin at 5:30, followed by the live auction. Tickets are $25.00 and all proceeds raised will support tuition assistance and scholarship funds for Wayfinder Schools students. For more information, call 236-3000.

Fall Open House October 21

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Wayfinder Schools’s 2nd annual Fall Open House is coming right up on October 21!

This is a great chance to meet our new students, tour the school, and celebrate the start of the new school year. 

 Students arrived in early September and have been hard at work on academics, community service projects and more.  Each student has secured a part time job or apprenticeship in the community. They’ve also been camping, hiking, rock climbing; they visited The Common Ground Fair and they volunteered at The Camden International Film Fest. 

 This year promises to be another exciting year at Wayfinder Schools, and we hope you’ll join us on October 21 to help us kick off the new year in style!

 Stop on by between 4:00pm and 6:00pm for a mug of warm apple cider and other fall treats.  Students will conduct tours of the school, and this will be a great chance to meet new neighbors and connect with old friends.

 Hope to see you there!
