The New Preston Congregational Church will sponsor its sixth annual Paint the Town event June 5 from 4 to 6 p.m.

Artists will spend the day painting local scenes and return to the church for more festivities.

Paintings may be viewed and hors d'oeuvres, wine and music will be offered at 4 p.m. at the 15 Church St. church.

A studio painting by each artist will be offered at a silent auction.

A live auction of all of the paintings created that day will be held at 5 p.m., with proceeds to benefit the artists, church and the Washington Volunteer Fire Department.
