Closing with a Live Auction to benefit land conservation in the Upper Valley.

The Live Auction will feature a dinner with the Dartmouth Idols & Walt Cunningham, a dinner with Christopher Wren & his wife, paintings by Brian Walsh and Linda Roesch, a silkscreen by Ikko Tanaka, a UVLT Trustees’ Special Select Wine Cellar, and a trek into the woods with Ben Kilham!

We hope you can attend the event on June 3 in person, but if not we will accept reserve bids by phone at (603) 643-6626.

Online bidding for UVLT’s 2011 Annual Meeting Auction will be open from noon on Friday, May 20 through noon on Thursday, June 2!

This year’s auction includes more than 80 items donated by local people and businesses. Search the list of items online and peruse the wide variety of products and activities included there; such as guided hikes, special dinners, local food products, artwork by area artists, gift certificates to regional businesses and more!

The online auction is a new feature this year. We hope it will allow those who can’t make it to the meeting to participate in supporting local land conservation. And if you do plan to attend, this feature will allow you to preview both silent and live auction items in advance. If something catches your eye, don’t hesitate to pre-bid. Some of these things may go fast!
