PARIS – A Chinese auction will be held Saturday in the Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School cafeteria to raise funds for the head custodians’ annual scholarship.

“We’ve got a number of high-price items,” said Dave Marshall, SAD 17’s building and grounds director.

The items include $100 in oil from Dead River Co., hand-stitched quilts, a vacuum cleaner, ABC rubbish services and other items.

Last year the custodians raised nearly $5,000 in their Chinese auction.

Doors open at 11 a.m. with the auction staring at 1 p.m. Lunch will be available with baked goods, hot dogs, chips and soda.

The 10 head custodians, the director of facilities and maintenance and volunteers work each year to raise money for the scholarship, started by head custodians in 2002 to support students’ educational efforts.

For the past several years, the custodians have raised about $5,000 enabling multiple scholarships. The group has raised more than $20,000 since beginning the auction.
