Hey everyone! Time to get ready for the neighborhood-wide garage/yard sale! We conducted a quick straw poll and, by a wide majority, the favored date is next Saturday, August 28. We will advertise it as 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Anyone in the neighborhood who wants to join in is welcome. There will be advertisements in the newspapers and signs to lure people in. Last year – the first for us – we had quite a lot of people come looking, so if you have stuff to get rid of, now is a good time to do it.
To participate, simply round up the stuff you would like to sell, and put it out on your yard or in your driveway on Saturday morning. You will be responsible for pricing everything and managing your own sales. We would appreciate a contribution toward the advertising from each participating neighbor. It would also be helpful if you contact me to let me know you are participating so I can make sure to direct people your way.
Hope everyone has good sales!
On our morning walks recently we’ve noticed a pile of roofing materials – mostly asphalt shingles – apparently left over from a roofing job. There is a sign on them that says “free” – so if you have a small shed (or a dog house, or a patch job) that you need some shingles for, stop by the north side of 2223 Country Lane to pick them up. There appear to be a few roof vents as well.
Quick recap to end my ‘official business’.
The meeting last night was well attended, the food was excellent, and everyone was very happy that Jack Miller had worked out the arrangements to be in the cool of the Club rather than in 115 degree (heat index) outside. And we actually came out ahead in donations! A special thanks to Barbara Fischer, who sent a generous contribution even though she was unable to attend – keep her in your thoughts.
The new directory was handed out to those attending. Martha and I will drop off directories for those who were unable to attend. One copy is free to each household, additional ones are available for $2 each.
New officers were chosen: Tony Hose is President/Chair, Sarah Catlin-Dupuy is Vice-President, Martha John is Secretary, and Sheila Dundon is the Treasurer. Martha John additionally agreed to coordinate the annual Neighborhood Garage Sale. I’m sure the officers will enjoy the support and cooperation of the entire neighborhood.
Thanks everyone, it was enjoyable serving as your association President/Chair these last couple of years!
