GENEVA – Members of the Geneva community are invited to participate in a community auction at the Coultrap facility in preparation for the building’s demolition later this year.

Auction items include desks, chairs, coat racks removed from the walls, historical glass doors from the original building, tables, and other items salvaged from the building. Money raised will be used by School District 304 to defray the cost of the facility’s demolition.

The silent auction will be held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, and from 8 to 11 a.m. on Sunday, April 14. The Coultrap building is at 1113 Peyton St., Geneva. Use the Lincoln Avenue entrance.

District staff will contact the winners of the items between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 14.  Winners will be able to pick up their auction items between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. the same day.  Arrangements can be made for winners to pick up items at a later date by calling 630-463-3025. All items must be removed from the building by Thursday, April 18. For information, call 630-463-3020.
