Volunteer Your Creativity for OPC’s “Be Seated Auction”

The Older Persons Commission (OPC) is looking for artistic people of all ages, young or old, to design and decorate chairs for their “Be Seated Auction” which will be held in conjunction with their ever-popular Used Art Sale on Thursday, September 25. All you need is chair (old or new) and a little creativity. OPC Be Seated Auction

Chairs can be painted, stenciled, bejeweled, embellished with mosaics or pottery pieces, Zentangled, word-burned, yarn bombed… the sky is the limit! Make a chair for indoors, outdoors, or even as a garden accent. If you own a business, you are welcomed to attach your business card to your piece, to make people aware of your presence in the community. Your chair must be received by Friday, September 12. If you need a chair, the OPC has plenty of donated undecorated chairs you can use to create your masterpiece.

Before you begin, contact Paula at paula_bedsole@opcseniorcenter.org (preferred) or 248-608-0253 to okay your project and later to set up a drop-off time. Older Persons Commission is located at 650 Letica in Rochester.
