Going Once, Going Twice ...

According to the online notice this is the second and final day of an auction of the remaining items removed by the MCCS System from the 13 Catholic schools closed by Bishop Clark last June.



The notice lists the following items as being up for auction:
  • WILLIAMS SONAPA 88 ELECTRONIC PIANO,
  • HOBART & CABLE UP RIGHT PIANO,
  • TWO WINTER SPINET PIANOS,
  • ASSORTED SCHOOL DESKS,
  • AV- EQUIPMENT, 16MM.PROJECTOR ETC.
  • ASSORTED TV's,
  • AV-ROLLING CARTS,
  • TWO DOOR STORAGE CABINETS,
  • VARIOUS SIZED STACKED CHAIRS,
  • ROOM DIVIEDERS,
  • OAK CHAIRS,
  • OVERHEAD PROJECTORS,
  • OFFICE CHAIRS,
  • TYPIST CHAIRS,
  • 6' & 8' BANQUET TABLES,
  • LAB COUNTERS W/-SINKS,
  • 6' WORK TABLES,
  • FOLDING CHAIRS,
  • 30/40 OFFICE DECKS,
  • CHALK BOARDS,
  • ROLLING 8 ROLL PAPER RACK,
  • COMPUTOR TABLES,
  • MULTI DRAWER CABINETS,
  • 100 - DAY CARE SLEEPING COTS,
  • DOCTOR SEUSS BOOKS,
  • TRAVEL & EDUCATION & CHILDREN BOOKS,
  • ENCYCLEPEDIAS,
  • BOOK CASES,
  • CHILDS ORGAN,
  • 2/4 DRAW FILE CABINETS,
  • ROUND TABLES,
  • STOOLS,
  • ROLLING CABINETS,
  • PULL DOWN MAPS,
  • OFFICE SUPPLYS,
  • 4' SHOW CASE,
  • GREETING CARD RACKS,
  • 10' TABLES,
  • OAK BOOK CASE,
  • WEIGHT SCALES,
  • STUFFED AMINALS,
  • TOYS,
  • SPORTS EQUIPMENT.
Most of this stuff looks fairly portable and one imagines was just loaded onto hand trucks and wheeled out of various school buildings.

The "LAB COUNTERS W/-SINKS," however, are a different matter. Plumbing and possibly electrical lines had to be disconnected to get them out. It sure looks like the MCCS System people are getting every buck they can out of this.

One wonders if the dumpsters will soon return to haul off whatever doesn't sell.
