A version of the book cover that promotes the CRMS fundraising event.

CAMDEN — The Camden Rockport Middle School’s Fundraising Committee invites the community to their fundraising event with local artist and children’s book author Chris Van Dusen on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Camden Snow Bowl, 20 Barnestown Road.

Join organizers for an afternoon of family fun with live music, food for purchase, an "If I Built a S’mores" bar, and a reading of Van Dusen's latest book, "If I Built a School," by the bonfire. The timing of this book couldn’t have been better for the new middle school project. Come hear the fanciful ideas captured in the book and learn about the new middle school.

The afternoon will include an exclusive art auction and sales of prints and T-shirts from artwork in Van Dusen's book, some of which will be specially modified for this event. Attendees will also be able to purchase and name a seat in the Bisbee Theater at the new Camden Rockport Middle School. Funds raised will be used for the new middle school’s athletic fields, theater lighting, playground equipment, furniture and an art sculpture. Fundraisers are nearly halfway to the goal of $500,000. Hope to see you there!
