Take a Seat in the Islands, presented by the Lake Champlain Islands Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Lake Champlain Transportation, will transport you to a world of flora, fauna, ships and sunsets, all appearing on ample benches of maple and poplar. In addition to the 16 benches painted by local artists, 5 child-sized benches were distributed, one to each local school, to be painted by the students.
All 21 benches will be displayed in venues throughout the Champlain Islands. Maps showing the location of the benches will be found at local stores, or click here for Google Map.
On Friday, August 17th, the benches will be sold at a live auction at the North Hero Community Hall. Auctioneer Jamie Polli of gameshowsvt.com will take the floor and invite the bids, and a 21 lucky people will go home with a beautiful work of art, practical, too! Tickets to the event are free but you must register to bid. Call the Chamber for a pre-bid application if you are unable to attend: (802) 372-8400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
