MONROE - Bidding for the Monroe Middle School's Chair-ity Auction begins today and continues through Friday. Students designed and painted the chairs in art class, repurposing unused chairs and giving them a colorful new life. The annual auction, which began in 2003-04 under retired art teacher Kris Preboske, is designed to promote art education in school and service learning for students.
