Auction will keep them singing
On Sunday, Jan. 29 the Martha's Vineyard Regional High School Minnesingers (above) will host their annual auction. The proceeds will benefit the group's trip to Ireland in April.

The annual benefit will feature a silent auction, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a dinner buffet, and a live auction. Kevin Ryan will take charge of the auction after dinner and do his best to bring top dollar for items like a Nova Scotia vacation and a sunset sail on the Arabella.

The Minnesingers will entertain with a mini-concert.

Tickets are still available by calling Kate Desrosiers 508-693-2152 or Karen Lobdell at 508-693-6839.
