Leader Marilou Town-Pudiak is a Master Gardener with Cornell Cooperative Extension and a retired teacher. With spring on its way, summer will be here before you know it. There will be lots to learn for kids and adults. For more information, visit the Cheney Library website.

Eclectic, artistic, original, whimsical, dramatic, creative, elegant, unique, funky and functional are just some of the adjectives that participants have used to describe the artist-altered one-of-a-kind items up for auction at HAYC3’s Hoosical Furnishings.

The furnishing might be a bench, a child’s chair, a table, a lamp, a mirror, or a trunk; it might even be a doghouse. It may be functional or decorative—or both.

There will be 50 pieces, large and small, old and new and each one has been transformed by an artist from its original plain old self into a work of art.

How do you get a Hoosical Furnishing? You come to the Hoosical Furnishings Auction of course. Look for the Hoosical Furnishings on display around the village starting Tuesday, April 29th.
