Fall into Fun

It's that time of year again, fall. It brings so many beautiful things such as fall leaves, cooler temperatures and outdoor fun. For me at Copeland Run Academy it also brings about planning for the Spring Fair and Silent Auction. It is my 4th year in chairing the auction so it seems like second nature for me now. And of course I wouldn't be able to do it without the amazing group of parent volunteers. Right now we are in the midst of assembling donation request letters. If you know anyone who would like to make a donation to the silent auction please contact me at radon71@yahoo.com. Put "auction" in the subject line. It could be your company, family member, friend or neighbor. All items are then auctioned off at the Spring Fair and Silent Auction on April 24, 2010 at the United Sports Training Center. Everyone wins, as the Copeland Run Parent's Association gets 100% of the proceeds and the highest bidder gets a terrific item. This years fundraising goal is raise money towards updating the existing playground equipment.
