The New Year is on it’s way and before long spring will be here. So, start digging out all your unwanted treasures, and sell them at our annual Spring Rummage Sale, April 10, 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

This is a Fund-raising event for the community center and, as in past years, the staff thanks all whohave been with us from the start and in years past. We always have a great turnout, so come to the sale and support your community.

As always, there will be great treasures for sale and food to purchase. Please contact the center for more information.
