Fundraising Yard Sale
We will be doing on Saturday morning June 9, 2007 in conjunction with St. George’s yard sale in the parking lot. We will be asking everyone to bring whatever things that they no longer use but which are still in good condition in order to sell them to raise money for our move into a new location in the future. These things are the same as those found in any yard sale — clothes, furniture, books, household items of any kind, etc. Also ask for volunteers to come forward to help on that day from 9am to 1 pm.
