Tag Sale Countdown!! – Saturday, August 5, 2017
√ Check all closets, attics, basements, cupboards, bookshelves, safe-deposit boxes and garages for no longer used items and long-forgotten treasures.
√ Deliver said treasures to 10 Lyons Plains Road any time before August 5 (sooner is better)
√ Tell Dorothy Rich that you can give a few hours to set up during the week and/or sell on Saturday the 5th. We’ve got a great crew shaping up – hot sweaty fun!
√ Be a hero and let Dorothy know that you can show up to pack up leftovers, and restore the sanctuary for Sunday morning. 4-6 pm on the 5th.
√ Lend sturdy folding tables (names on them, please), brought by July 30.
√ Save BOXES – sturdy ones for packing up leftovers, Costco type fruit boxes for displaying books and for shoppers to load up. Even shoe boxes come in handy.
√ Put a lawn sign out IF you a.) live on a HIGH traffic road in Westport or adjacent town, or b.) can put one in a key spot in close-by towns (we have a limited supply, they’re costly and must be returned).
√ Take or print some fliers for your local library, coffee shop, bodega, laundromat, supermarket, on your car…
√ Attend the church service on Sunday, July 30 and stay to break down the sanctuary and set up tables.
√ Pray for a slightly overcast, 72º day on August 5!
Have you seen Wile E. Coyote? Don’t be startled by a very realistic image of a coyote placed near the entrance to the Memorial Garden. It is there to discourage damage caused by wild turkeys. The image will not hurt the birds in any way but will encourage them to move a bit away from the entry plaza and the stairs from the parking lot.
