Townspeople of Strong conducted a host of fundraising events during the school construction project to ensure that it was furnished with "A Seat for Every Child."

Here donated items are sold to the highest bidder in a very spirited auction at a storage garage owned by Carroll H. Brackley. Bids often exceeded the value of the items.
