Nests for Knowledge!


They say that birds of a feather flock together! If this is so, please read on to find out about an upcoming event that neither you nor your fine feathered friends will want to miss! This event is none other than the Newton-Conover Education Foundation Nests for Knowledge Bird Schoolhouse Auction! The Newton-Conover Education Foundation (NeCoEdFo) is a non-profit organization founded to help support excellence in education in the Newton-Conover City School System. NeCoEdFo consists of areas business leaders working with educators and administrators to create stronger educational opportunities for Newton-Conover.

In order to raise the support necessary to support high school students and teachers, the foundation conducts several fundraisers throughout the year. The latest NeCoEdFo fundraiser will take place from 6:30 to 9pm on November 6, 2014 at South Newton Elementary School. The event will be a bird house auction in which we are asking creative and crafty people , businesses, organizations, and clubs to design build, and donate a bird house for this November auction. The twist is that the bird house must be their interpretation of a bird schoolhouse, or utilize an education-oriented theme or motif in their design. NeCoEdFo would like to see the Conover and Newton area governments, schools, departments, commissions, businesses, organizations, and families get involved by donating bird schoolhouses and attending the auction. Those who are interested in creating bird houses must have them completed and donated to Tim Eilliot at Tim Elliot Designs (828-465-3738) by October 3, 2014.

Those who wish to support this event on November 6th will have an opportunity to bid on bird houses prior to the event on-line, or at the event through the auctioning process, which will take place from 7:30 to 9:00pm, after the 6:30pm viewing reception. Refreshments and entertainment will also be on hand to provide a wonderful atmosphere for those coming to support the foundation.  Prizes and a fabulous $1500 Grand Prize will be given away throughout the evening!
