Okay, you know this hint of Spring weather has got you…you have closets overflowing with stuff you keep shoving in every time company is coming…

Now is your chance to free up some space in your home and help the park…

The Commercial Park Garage Sale is BACK!!! This year we have moved it up to March 26th and 27th so you need to get started!  We also have two ways to participate:

Option 1:  Donate your stuff to the park. We will sell it and use the money for free programming and playlot improvements.  We can”t start taking your stuff until March 21st so please hang on to it and bring it over the week before the sale.  No adult clothing, please.

Option 2:  Buy a table and sell your things. We will provide you with a table and space for displaying.  We will do the advertising for you.  This way you don’t have to beg people to venture down your alley!  Tables are $30 for the weekend.  The best part….Leave your stuff behind.  We will take care of all the leftovers!  Email Georgia Burke at georgiaburke@gmail.com if you would like to sign up for a table.

So, don’t just sit there!  Use these chilly March days to clean house so that when the warmer days arrive you can open the windows and relax!

 

Come out and vote for new Commercial Park Advisory Council Board members.  The month CPAC meeting is Tuesday night, August 17th at 7:30pm in the field house at Commercial park.  Nominations were held during the July meeting and positions will be voted on at this meeting.  This meeting, and all advisory council meetings are open to the public and are held the third Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm.  Check out the July 2010 Minutes to stay up to date.
