Annual Tag & Plant Sale, July 9th
The annual USNH giant tag and plant sale will take place in the Social Hall, Foyer, and outside spaces, on Saturday, July 9 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The sale is open to the local community ($5 from 8:30-9, free from 9-12). This is a fundraiser for USNH that last year netted $2,000 and gives us at USNH an opportunity to transfer unneeded items to others who would use them.
Please set aside useable items such as kitchen items, linens, toys and games, jewelry, office supplies, books, planters, artwork and frames, sports equipment, Christmas items, and decorative pieces. Please no computers, TVs, or clothing. Closer to the time, we’ll be asking for plants divided from plants
in your home or yard.
We will be accepting goods for the sale from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5, Wednesday, July 6, Thursday, July 7, and Friday, July 8.
Please save items until then.
We will need help on all the nights above, as well as on the day of the sale. There is a sign-up board in the Social Hall with time slots divided into shifts. We inevitably need some volunteers with strong muscles for lifting and carrying furniture and other heavy items. We also need drivers and vehicles that can transport leftovers in big boxes to Helping Hands after the sale. Please sign up for one or more of the shifts. If you can help with the sale but are unable to sign up on the board, or if you have further questions, please contact Toby Appel at 203-288-4532 or email@example.com,
or Ann Levison at 203-281-1548 firstname.lastname@example.org
