Junior Salmon Auction, May 22

On May 22th, at 7:00 PM, Vernonia Hands-On Art Center, the local non-profit arts and heritage support group, presents the fifth annual Jr. Salmon Auction at Vernonia’s new school on Missouri Avenue.

A fundraiser for the Vernonia Schools arts programs, the auction features the amazing salmon creations of Vernonia art students. The students are supplied with blank pressboard salmon on which to craft their own unique visions. In addition to salmon, students have worked their magic on small furniture items that will also be included in the auction.

JuniorSalmonAuctionBeginning at 7:00 PM the salmon will be auctioned off with a minimum starting bid of  $10.00. Profits go to support Vernonia School Arts, Scholarship, and Hands-On Art programs.

Doors open at 6:30. Enjoy live music performed by students under the direction of Andy Morrow, visit the Band Boosters for a bite to eat, and chat up Vernonia’s talented young artists while you browse their creations. Be sure to sign up at the bidder’s table and be ready to go at 7:00!
