The Maude committee has worked furiously to secure some truly amazing items for the silent auction.  Bidding will run from 6:00-8:00pm at the Maude, Music, and Montessori event on Monday, March 18th.  

If you are unable to attend the event, you may bid via proxy.  Please note, however, that payment is expected on the night of the event.  All items have been donated by local businesses and friends of Armatage, and all proceeds go directly to support staffing at our school.
