Fourteenth Annual All Church Rummage Sale

Friday, June 1 – Saturday June 2 – Bag Sale

Although recent weather has not been inspiring us to start spring-cleaning, we hope all will soon be looking through closets and basements and collecting items for the HUGE Rummage Sale coming soon to our fellowship hall.  It is always fun to see how many treasures are brought in and the variety of items offered for reuse rather than discarded into the landfill.

The Christian Education Committee and Green Team are joining forces again this year to insure we have an outstanding sale, and we most certainly need your help!

Volunteers are needed from 8 am until 5 pm during set up May 27th– morning of May 31stand 6 am until 6 pm on Friday, June 1stfor the BIG SALE.  We also need helpers for the fun Buck-a-Bag Sale from 7-9 am followed by rapid clean up on Saturday morning, June 2nd. If you haven’t helped on Saturday, those few hours are a sight to behold.  Marshfield comes in force to help us clean out the fellowship hall and they PAY US for the privilege.  Don’t miss it!  J

Donations of clean and gently worn clothing, household items, lawn and garden equipment, holiday décor, linens, sporting goods, toys, books and whatever else you would like to bring in for the sale are welcomed. We CANNOT accept TVs, computers or appliances like refrigerators and stoves, however. Please check the recycling bookmarks for suggested recycling sites. Electronics may be recycled at the Opportunity Development Center and computers are accepted there and at Goodwill.

If you need assistance transporting large items, please notify Nancy in the church office to make arrangements for pick-up (715-384-2484).

The increasingly popular perennial/herb sale will be held just outside the rummage sale again this year. It’s a great place to pick up plants you may need for your yard/garden and support women’s educational scholarships through local P.E.O. chapter CY.

Please check your calendars and plan to join us often during this annual, very enjoyable, all-church family project. The BEST part is socializing with church friends as we work together!  Your assistance, your donations and of course, your purchases are all welcomed.  Early shopping is available to anyone who volunteers 2 or more hours during the set-up time.  Be sure someone with the clipboard knows you’re there to help. Sign up clipboards will be in the Narthex starting April 22nd.  

Paper and plastic grocery sacks for our checkout tables would be most appreciated.  See you soon in the Fellowship Hall!

*We may be able to accept some items 5/25. Please call first to make sure. (384-2484)
