So Who wants to have a garage sale?
We have sponsored the Community-wide Garage Sale for a lot of years, and it seemed like most people had already cleaned out their closets by the number of sales the event had fallen to. But with the COVID Cleanout, it seems people are ready for it again.
The usual date, the first Friday and Saturday after Memorial Day, has been taken over by the Chamber for the Ben Holladay/Missouri Bicentennial Celebration June 5. We can go back to that next year, but it doesn’t look good for this year.
It could be June 11-12 if there’s enough interest, or any other weekend people want.
The key for us is participation.  Advertising and promotion, to say nothing of the extra print run, have a cost and it’s always been supported by those who advertise.
So, drop me an e-mail or call so we can get this going!
