Thank you to all Volunteers and Shoppers

Thank you to all Volunteers and Shoppers

Our Rummage Sale was a great success with items flying off the racks and shelves.  Furniture and art deals were a huge hit.   Thank you to all of the volunteers, including members of our day program, for helping to set up the sales room, helping out during the sale and even cooking the sausages and fries.  The money will go towards a variety of projects including a vacation for approximately 18 individuals, Christmas gifts for folks who have no family members; emergency services and supplies to individuals in need and many other needs.  Our sincere thanks again to everyone who helped make this a great success……our shoppers too.

Our next Rummage Sale will be scheduled for late Summer in 2017 – we will keep you posted here.
