Yard Sale UPDATE

Hi everyone I just wanted to let you all know that I got word from Lee that we will be having the yard sale at the April meeting on the 28th. I hope this gives everyone time to pull more goodies and bring them out for the sale. As previous the meeting will start a little early that night so try to get to the community center around 6 and the yard sale will be starting at 7pm. 

Please spread the word on your other social media outlets and maybe we will have another awesome turn out like last year.
