Neighborhood Garage Sale 2018
Date: May 17 – 18, 2019
Homestead Farm will be hosting its annual garage sale the first weekend in May (3, 4, & 5) to benefit the swim team. We will marketing the garage sale to numerous garage sites and social media, creating and distributing signs, creating a neighborhood map of sites, and coordinating a charity pick up for all your left over items. All you have to do is host a site! The cost to host your own site this year will be $25. Angie H. will have an envelope hanging on her door starting in April.
There will be no community site this year so we are counting on your help to support the swim team. Start purging those basements and garages! If you don’t have enough stuff to host, consider partnering with a neighbor or two! Thank you in advance for hosting and helping to raise funds for the swim team! Go Tarpons!
