Auction decorations

Montshire's Benefit Auction would not be possible without the generous support of the businesses and individuals who donate items to benefit the Museum. We thank you for your charitable contributions and invaluable partnerships. Each donor is recognized in the auction catalog, and will be featured in a Valley News ad following the event.

To donate an item or service for future auctions, contact us at


We wish to thank the many dedicated volunteers whose creativity, enthusiasm, and leadership made the 2017 auction a memorable and inspiring event. Planning for Montshire's 2018 Fiddlehead Flingwill begin very soon! Auction volunteer opportunties come in all shapes and sizes, from a one-day committment to several months of planning. If you want to volunteer, we can find a job suited to you!
