Good Neighbor's Silent Auction--It's On!
You can kill the proverbial two birds with one stone. It's Giving Tuesday, when charities and non-profits begin to make their pitches for end of the year contributions . And, it's the holiday season, when you may be looking to stave off that seasonal, what-do-I-buy-them-this-year, panic.

Attend to both, and do it now! You can support the Good Neighbor Health and Red Logan Dental Clinics (celebrating a 25th anniversary of free medical and dental services to qualifying people in VT and NH) and gift your friends and family with treasures by Upper Valley artists by bidding in this week's online auction. There are Dustin Coates's signature turned bowls and photography by Jon Gilbert Fox and Martin Schunk (featured photo, above). Hand-crafted jewelry by White River Junction's Scavenger Gallery and a mirror by artist Naomi Hartov. Paintings, lampshades, Stave Puzzles.

If you are following the philosophy of giving your friends--or yourself--experiences rather than goods, you can bid on a juggling lesson, or nab a gift card to places like the Loch Lyme Lodge, Stella's Restaurant, or the Norwich Bookstore. Or Tatunka Tattoo.
You can browse the auction catalog by clicking here, and by checking out the Clinic's Facebook Page. You can bid in person at the clinic, or by emailing Eula Kozma at email@example.com, or calling her at 802-295-1868. Bids will be taken also at the Final Bid Party at the clinic from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. on December 2, 2016, which coincides with White River's monthly First Friday celebration.
The Good Neighbor Health Clinics in White River Junction VT--a worthy cause, and home-grown.
