Special Silver Sale at the Library

Friday, November 19, 2010
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Rosemont is offering for sale some of the silver, both sterling and silver plate, that was stored for at least a decade in the basement of Main Building and is no longer of use to the College. The sale will benefit the Rosemont community because it will defray the cost of needed databases and tables and chairs for the newly renovated "Remembering Sister Helen Mary Weisbrod, SHCJ Information Commons."

Every single piece that was unpacked was tarnished, but members of the Library Staff came to the rescue. They donned rubber gloves and with lots of silver polish and determination, they brought the teapots, flatware, vases, and bowls back to their brilliant former lives. A silver specialist did the pricing and has offered to buy some things, but we wanted to offer the Rosemont Community the chance to buy first.

The silver will be in two cases in the Kistler Library on November 19, 2010 from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Please stop by to have a look. Cathy Fennell or Mary Leahy will be pleased to show you any of the pieces you want to see.

Thank you in advance for helping us turn these items into something useful for Rosemont.
