An Art Exhibit and Silent Auction featuring old suitcases and a few trunks will be held at the Susquehanna Community Elementary School Thursday evening, June 8, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. The display will be in the LGI room at the school and the suitcases can be purchased by the highest bidder. Each of the suitcases are painted and turned into unique, functional cases. Some examples are Doggie Overnight cases, Kitty Kare Kases, Winter Car Emergency cases, Game Board Storage Cases, Gardening Cases, a Magician’s Trunk and much more. You’ll just have to see them to believe them.
All of the suitcases were designed and worked on by the elementary art students from fourth, fifth, and sixth grades, and some third graders as well. The reason for the silent auction is to use it as a fundraiser. Funds raised will be used to purchase a computer projector for the art room, or art books for the school’s library.
Bidding will be closed at 7:30 to enable the last bidders to be notified. Those with the highest bid will be notified if not present, or if present can pay and take the cases with them. Those who are not present can arrange a pickup time and place with Miss Gallagher.
