Letter to the editor
The Clipper Gallery held a silent auction on Saturday, March 9that the Old School Gathering Place, Musquodoboit Harbour. This event was held to raise bursary funds to assist an Eastern Shore District High School student in attending NSCAD (Nova Scotia College of Art and Design) in the fall of 2019. Student applications will be accepted in the spring, and the successful applicant will receive $1000. The event raised almost $1500. The remainder will be held over and added to the proceeds of the 2020 event.
I would like to thank the following artists for their generous contributions to the auction; Judith Brannen, Deirdre Dwyer, Harry Hamm, Ed Huner, Ralph Latham III, Anne MacLean, Lynda Mallett, Steven Marshall, Joy O’Brien, Karen Schlick, Stephen Sekerak and Kristina Sobstad. I would also like to thank the Old School Gathering Place and Leslie Savoie, the Coastal Voices Men’s Choir and Jack Sanders and Keith Waddell for their wonderful musical contributions, and Natalie Smith, who was my contact at Eastern Shore District High School.
Finally, I would like to thank all those who attended and participated in the auction, who brought snacks, and who contributed to this effort. We are so fortunate to live in such a diverse and engaged community.
