October 20 & 21
The entire Claremore community will be looking for treasures at our semi-annual First United Methodist Church gigantic garage sale. The Family Life Center will be transformed into a bargain hunters paradise filled with everything you can imagine. And this year, there is even more opportunity to shop as we extend the sale to 2 days!
The sale starts on Friday, October 20th at 8:00 a.m. and runs until 4:00 p.m. On Saturday, the sale begins at 8:00 a.m. and runs until 2:00 p.m.
Without volunteers, the garage sale cannot take place. Volunteers are needed to on Wednesday after 8:00 p.m. and Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. to help organize and price items. Help for a little while, or stay and help all day. If you have a truck or trailer, you are especially needed to help pick up large donations and bring them to the church. A sign up sheet will be available in Disciple Hall, but you do not need to sign up to help. Volunteers are always welcome and greatly appreciated! Just show up and we will put you to work.
We also need volunteers during the sale. At 2:00 on Saturday, we especially need help to haul off unsold merchandise and to put the church back in order for Sunday services.
Donations will be accepted Thursday, October 19, between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. only. If you have large donations that you need picked up, please call the church at 918-341-4580 no later than Wednesday, October 18, to make arrangements for pick up on October 19. Again, October 19 is the only day to drop off donations or to have donations picked up.
Due largely to lack of space, we are NOT able to accept clothing. And as in previous years, we cannot accept large televisions, large computer monitors, or broken items. Thank you for keeping quality items in our garage sale. We can still accept shoes, coats, and flat-screen monitors. Clothing items can be dropped off at Second Impressions Resale on Cherokee or Goodwill on Lynn Riggs.
If you have any questions, you may call the church office at 918-341-4580.
