PAYING IT FORWARD WITH WOODWORKING:
In this class, we have made it our goal to spend some time working on projects to benefit others.  With our knowledge of woodworking, we will complete projects and put them up for sale for the community to bid on.  We will then take that money and donate it to a NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) of our choice. 
     The projects we are working on are mainly unfinished projects from previous years.  Our goal is to finish these projects to their full potential. 
     We have researched many Non-Profit Organizations to see which ones put most of their money toward their program, have high ratings, and we think are great causes to donate to. 
     If you are interested in any of our items – you may place a bid by emailing one of the following addresses:
cara.cummings@arsu.org or Anthony.walsh@arsu.org, or call (802) 265-4966 Extension 212. 
Bids will be accepted for all items until Thursday – April 30.
Photos of the two items up for bid currently can be seen on WEB Announcements
The table has a starting bid of $35 and the nightstand has a starting bid of $25.
Both of these can also be seen in the Trophy Case in the Lobby.  TY
