Arty auc­tion will keep strays warm

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead, Derby Line, VT

A good crowd, over forty bid­ders, at­tended the an­nual Art Auc­tion of the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety (FAS), held last Sun­day at the Haskell Free Li­brary. Bid­ders were, once again, pleased with the qual­ity of the art­work and the va­ri­ety and qual­ity of the ‘gen­tly used’ items that were also do­nated for the bid­ding. “We had an ex­cel­lent auc­tion, with a rough count of about $2,330 raised,” said FAS vol­un­teer, Dal­las Des­saint. “There were a lot of new peo­ple at the auc­tion and ev­ery­one had a great time. The money raised will be­gin to take us through the win­ter,” she added. Heat­ing costs at the shel­ter, that about forty cats and thirty dogs call home, can be quite high.

Auc­tion­eer Phil De­sormeaux keeps the ex­cite­ment high with his an­tics and hu­mour, with help from An­drea Dezan and Brenda Dezan, in front of a full house in the Read­ing Room of the Haskell Free Li­brary dur­ing the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety Art Auc­tion.
