Silver Bells Holiday Boutique
Timmons Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization is hosting the Silver Bells Boutique on Dec. 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Timmons Elementary School, 9595 E. Washington St. in Chagrin Falls. The show will feature more than 70 unique local vendors, junior craft vendors and Cookie Castle.
Market Day
Market Day is a once-a-month grocery sale/fundraising program that offers hundreds of delicious foods such as meats, seafood, vegetables, breakfast items, desserts as well as ready to make family size meals. It also offers great snack and lunchbox items, as well as drinks.
All items offer a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee, and customers can earn free items every month. Proceeds benefit the high school PTO.
Up to 20 percent of every order supports all Kenston High School students by funding programs such as laptops, funding requests from teachers and testing snacks, just to name a few.
Orders can be placed online at www.marketday.com. Kenston’s number is 5848. Orders may also be placed by calling Market Day Customer Service at 877-632-7753, or by picking up and dropping off order forms from any Kenston school office.
Never ordered Market Day before? Use promo code NEWFIVE and save $5 off one’s first order of $25 or more.
Online order deadline is Dec. 13 with pickup Dec. 18 in the Kenston High School cafeteria from 5-6 p.m.
Technology Equipment Sale
The district will be auctioning and selling numerous technology items that have been removed from service and obsoleted per Kenston’s Board of Education policy. Some are in good working order while other items have some issues but still work. The items were removed from service to accommodate upgraded equipment and technology in the classroom. The sale will consist mostly of computers, monitors and projectors. Please read all disclaimers before purchasing or bidding.
The auction and sale are running through Dec. 12. There are some fixed price items, while others are auction style. Similar items will have staggered start times to insure that if one does not win a bid on a particular item, one can bid on an identical item shortly after without having to risk unintentionally winning two items of the same.
Visit the district website at www. kenstonlocal.org to link to the auction.
