Be Present! Join our extended community of auction volunteers. There are small and larger ways to be part of the Auction’s success this year. Together, we all make a difference!
Solicit! Help secure items and advertisements – join our Silent or Live Auction Committees or simply reach out to your own network of friends, companies, resorts, and restaurants for a donation. Check out some ideas in the "Support" tab (on the left).
Decorate! Help us transform our gyms for a swanky 20s night out on the town – join the Decorations Committee and lend your creative and artistic talents, or join us for a community-wide (kids too!) decorations workshop in January – no experience necessary! Lots of hands are needed for the week of Auction set up too.

Each year the entire Maret community, including students, come out in January to help make the decorations for the Auction. This is a great way to volunteer and also to meet many in the community. There are jobs for everyone - no need to have any special artistic talent, because we will teach you! Come for an hour or come for the entire day, we welcome everyone.
Write! From your desktop or laptop – help us write item descriptions or lend your expertise to create our Live Auction Power Point slide show. Please contact Marilyn Potts if you are interested in being part of the writing team.
We Need You!
And, the Auction is a great way to meet other Maret families! Contact one of the Section Chairs or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
