Auctions are almost done
Original post made by Amy Taylor, Valley View Elementary School, on Jul 31, 2009
On the flip-side, it has been hard to not get discouraged when I think about all the effort and time I have put into this (with the help of others too). It has literally become like a full-time job organizing this auction. And I have been glad to do it most of the time. But the truth of the matter is that the end results will not be enough.
So I hang on to the fact that this effort brought a lot of us together. I can sleep at night knowing I did everything I could to keep our schools the quality they once were. But I am still sad that we will be losing many of our great teachers.
I am still hoping for a miracle. That in these final days many who have been on the fence about donating, will. That the downtown carnival will bring in a ton of money and get people hopeful again.
It's not over 'til the fat lady sings!
If you want to check out the auctions, there is a group ending tonight, and I will be posting more listings in the next couple of days. Please click on the link below
Thanks to everyone for your support.
