CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Santa's helpers have been busy already.

Local artists created 31 artworks from rocking chairs to support the local art community and buy a new float for Santa for the 2006 Holiday Parade through Chambersburg.

The chairs are on parade - available for viewing - at various businesses in the Chambersburg area through Friday, July 28.

The chairs are available for purchase through a silent auction that closes at 3 p.m. Friday, July 28. Those bids can be outbid at the live auction at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 29, at M&T Bank, 55 S. Main St.

Bids start at $50 and increase in $5 increments. Silent bids will be accepted in person at the Council for the Arts, 159 S. Main St., and by calling 1-717-264-6883.

The artists receive half the proceeds from the sale of their chairs and the rest goes to the arts council for its programs. The council is donating $1,000 of its proceeds this year to help with Santa's new float.
