We had a fairly good neighborhood garage sale this past Saturday. A small number of households participated, but those of us who did had good traffic and sold a fair amount of stuff. We have had this neighborhood-wide sale for three years in a row now, and it has gone fairly well. We have it in early fall – sometime between late August and early October, usually depending on the home football schedule. We will probably have another one next year, so you might keep that in the back of your mind and set things aside to sell then. A final decision will be made at the annual meeting the first week of August.
We received word this morning that Barbara Fischer, a dear friend and neighbor at 2103 North Country Club Drive, passed away Saturday morning, September 10th. An obituary has not yet appeared in the paper; if you see one please send us a link and we will add it to this post.
Warren Prost let us know that he had spoken to a hospice caregiver that morning outside Barbara’s house. He said they shared a few stories about her, and she made a point of saying how fond they had become of her and how easy it was to be a caregiver to Barb. She will be sadly missed but warmly remembered.
Edit – 12 October: There was finally a nice obituary in the Tribune last Sunday for Barbara. Here is a link to it.
