3rd annual Village-Wide Garage Sale

To the editor:

The Women’s Civic Chamber would like to invite community members to join us in the fun of the Village-Wide Garage Sale on Saturday, July 12. The sale will be advertised online on the regional chamber of commerce calendars, Facebook and in the local media. The Adirondack Daily Enterprise has offered to feature the garage sale map and descriptions of sale items in the Weekender section printed the Thursday before the sale. During the week prior to this year’s sale, we will drop off two copies of your garage sale number, to display as you wish.

Applications are available on our Facebook page, at the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, the Blue Moon or Hyde Fuel. All applications are due Monday, June 30, so the map can be printed. You have the option of either having the sale at home or getting a 20-by-20 spot in Riverside Park or along the waterfront to the boat launch. We welcome all groups doing their own fundraising as well as multiple family sites.

Your $20 fee is used to support local high school and middle school scholarships, various youth programs including the Youth Center, Pee Wee Hockey and Dewey Mountain, High Peaks Hospice, Holiday Helpers and the Winter Carnival Committee, among many other community programs. We also use funds to provide free family events like the Winter Carnival Coronation, the 4th of July Kiddie Parade and picnic in Riverside Park, as well as the Olympic parade. These donations and events would not be possible without the community members’ participation in our biggest fundraiser!

Thanks for your support and for spreading the word about the third annual Village-Wide Garage Sale.
