The Touchstone Garage Sale is this coming Saturday, Feb. 25 8-noon at
the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 305 Wellborn Rd. in College
Station. We need donated items and volunteers to help out. We will
be accepting donations of items from 4 PM until 9 PM or so (maybe
later if we know things will be still coming in) at the UU Fellowship
of Friday, Feb. 24. We need volunteers to help with sorting,
cleaning, and pricing on Friday, Saturday at the sale starting at 7
AM, and for clean-up afterwards. Even a time donation of an hour or
so helps us. Trucks/large cars are needed to haul items on Friday and
Saturday after the sale (all donated items that are not sold are
given to charity after the sale). For more information, see copies
of previous emails on the sale below or call Danny Yeager at 777-8758
or email touchst at cy-net.net.
