Jan. 19, 2003 – It's that time again: all those items you've been storing because "somebody might need it someday" or "it's too good to throw out" are wanted for the United Way's annual Flea Market. So go through your collection in your attics, garages — well, wherever you store your stuff that in cold climates gets stored in the attics and basements — and see what you can part with for the benefit of the United Way.
This year's Flea Market will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at a new location: the American Legion Hall in Sub Base. For the event, the United Way seeks previously-owned household goods, toys, books, furniture, appliances, clothing and accessories, which will be resold at "fabulously low prices," said a release.
Mark your calendar and plan to attend, as there'll be more than pre-owned merchandise. United Way's member agencies will be on hand to sell local food and drinks, plants, and books, as well as to explain their service programs.
The value of items donated to the United Way is tax deductible. To donate goods or to volunteer to assist with the event, please contact executive director Thyra Hammond at 774-3185.
