Neighborhood Yard Sale Plans

This idea has been discussed and a date has been set for September 9th, 2006. We are still in the planning stages for this event and are willing to expand on it in future years to include open houses and garden tours but for now the concept for this is simple. Everyone is encouraged to have his or her own yard or garage sale. The Walnut Hills Association will publish an official map showing yard sale locations and publish this on a web page and distribute flyers through the libraries and any other means. We will also advertise the event. If you wish to be identified on the map, the fee is $5.00. This will offset the costs of maps and advertising.
The neighborhood will be divided into sections. The lower section from the Wayne/Wyoming triangle up to Illinois Ave has enough volunteers to organize and attend a starting/information station at the Family Video parking lot. If you live in this section and want to participate, call Gail at 253-9041.
We would like to expand this event to have another station at the Ohmer Park Church if possible but need 5 or 6 people to organize this section and attend the station. If you live between Indiana Ave and Pursell Ave and would like to participate or help, contact Sarah at 252-2210. We need two or three people to organize the section on the west side of Wayne Ave if people would like to participate in that area, call Gail at the number above.
If you don't want to have a yard sale, but would prefer to donate your items to the Association, you can. These items will be sold at the two stations and the proceeds will go towards the Walnut Hills Association. Any items that are not sold will be given to a local church or Goodwill after the event. If anyone would like to assist with the planning of this event call Gail at 253-9041 or Chad at 258-2392.
