The third grade land auction is an important part of their annual Community Project, providing the opportunity for partnerships to bid on and "purchase" plots of land and buildings in the Rome area. This year's third grade community project is focused on 10 local businesses with Darlington connections that continued to serve their customers and the community during the Covid-19 pandemic.
After securing winning bids, each partnership wrote "checks" payable to auctioneer Lou Dempsey ('87) of Dempsey Auction Co. for their properties. The partners will construct the structures to make up the model community. We are very appreciative of Mr. Dempsey's continued support in making this a memorable event for our third-graders.
