NEW - NOTES FOR FIRST-ANNUAL LAKE-WIDE YARD SALE SATURDAY, AUG. 26
1. If you have gently used items that you want to just donate to the cause, please email Maureen at email@example.com to schedule a drop off time and discuss details.
2. People have inquired about setting up tables at Fitzgerald Field instead of their homes, due to it not being feasible to have a sale on their street. The field is for Map distribution only. However, you are invited to bring your tables and yard sale items to the home of the Spindt's at 7 Ruth Street. There is plenty of parking, a large grassy area with shade, and an empty 3 car garage, in case of rain. You may begin setting up at 7 am. Plan on staying to sell your own merchandise.
3. Please share our yard sale information on your Facebook page, and to friends, family, co-workers, and many others!
4. Please remember to return your yard sale registration form and $20.00 check to Lake Shirley Improvement Corporation. ASAP. To be included on the map, the date has been extended to August, 23rd.
