Call for Silent Auction Items: We are pleased to have a number of items already for the MinneTESOL Silent Auction which raises money at the November conference to provide grants for teachers. One major item already received is a $500 travel voucher from Delta Airlines, so if you have plans for upcoming travel, this would be a great way to perhaps get discounted travel and help MinneTESOL at the same time! We could use a few more items for the auction, though. Please contact Janice Dames at if you have an item or service to contribute or if you have questions. Be creative!
