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


Planning for Montshire's 2016 Fiddlehead Fling is well underway! We wish to thank the many dedicated volunteers whose creativity, enthusiasm, and leadership make this event a success.
