Garage Sale – Volunteer Details
It’s our 29th Annual Yard Sale!!
MISSION AND VISION IN ACTION AT THE ANNUAL GARAGE SALE
The annual Garage Sale is our most intensive person-power project. We transform the sanctuary, the Olympia Brown room, the classrooms, and the lawn into showrooms.
The metamorphosis begins after Sunday service on June 10th and continues through Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday as we bring in and organize donations from relatives, friends, neighbors, and ourselves. Thursday is the last day of organizing and pricing.
The Sale is 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM on FRIDAY, JUNE 15 AND SATURDAY JUNE 16.
Choose from the list below what you can do to make the Garage Sale a success: THANK YOU!! Sign-up sheets will be available in the Olympia Brown room in the weeks before the Sale.
The first planning session on April 18 got us off to a solid start. You can participate in DETAIL PLANNING on May 9, May 29, and June 6 at 5:30 PM. Organizer Lynne has a time-tested scheme and layout ready to go.
