The Women’s Health Resource Library will be holding their annual Chinese Auction during this year’s Milbridge Days celebration with several important changes. The location this year will be the Seaworthy Event Center on Main Street. And the auction will be a two-day event for the first time, starting Friday, July 28th. Doors will open Friday at 1 PM and close at 6 PM. Saturday hours are 8 AM to 1:30 PM.
Also new this year is the addition of a silent “Chair-ity Auction” for sixteen Adirondack chairs hand-painted by local artists.
The new larger venue will be able to accommodate a growing list of auction items including Disney day passes, a custom 8-foot wooden skiff, vacation destinations, concert tickets, sporting event tickets, a kids bounce house, battery powered child-size car, museum passes, tools, art, pottery, gift certificates, dining, food and more. Photos are available on the WHRL website, and on the WHRL Facebook Chair-ity Auction Album and Chinese Auction Album.
The Seaworth Event Center will be displaying the design plan for Milbridge Commons during Milbridge Days. The “Commons” is a community park and garden off Main Street in Milbridge, a nearly five-acre parcel with shore frontage that will include walking trails and organic help-yourself vegetable gardens. Groundbreaking is expected this fall.
Proceeds from the auctions will benefit the programming of the Women’s Health Resource Library including Incredible Edible Milbridge and Milbridge Commons.
