Getting ready

silent auction item

Duane Hicks

Jean Richards last week got the silent auction ready for the Fine Line Art Gallery’s upcoming “Christmas Extravaganza.” From now until the open house this Saturday (Nov. 10), people are urged to drop by 529 Mowat Ave. and bid on upwards of 25 items. The bids will be drawn during the open house, which will run from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and feature a variety of unique gift ideas for sale. Proceeds from the auction will be split with a local charity.
