Annual Garage Sale - Oct. 2nd. & 3rd.

It's not too early to think about donating items to the "Annual Community of Joy Church Garage Sale", so when you do your spring cleaning, don't fling anything away…box it or bag it and save it! The annual sale will be Friday and Saturday, October 2nd and 3rd. If you’re going to be away for the summer and/or early fall or have large items that you cannot handle, please call Karen Sterzik (922-0465). Storage is available beginning in May.

In order to run a successful sale, we need a lot of donated goods. Please encourage your friends, neighbors, business associates, and fellow club members to contribute their items as well. We offer tax deduction forms. All of the proceeds will go to local charities; the unsold items also will benefit a local charity. We do not accept clothing, shoes or tube televisions.

Thanks in advance for your support of this annual event; let’s make it a great success. There will be plenty of opportunities to volunteer, but meanwhile, clean out those cabinets and closets, under the bed, the garage, the shed....Questions or comments? Call Sue Dawson (538-4643).
