Tag Sale May 6

The annual Tag Sale at Christ the King Church will be Saturday May 6, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the parish hall. Take advantage of this event to clean out closets, garages and attics! We will collect items for the tag sale starting the Sunday before the sale, April 30. Furniture sells well so we would gladly take it for the sale if you can get it to the church. Larger items including furniture and large volume donations can only be accepted in the parish hall Thursday May 4 and Friday May 5.

We will need volunteers to help set up, sell and clean up on Friday, May 5 (all day) and Saturday, May 6 (7:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.). We are looking for help with advertising. If you live or work near Rice Village, you could distribute fliers, or if you have a connection to a local newsletter you may be able to facilitate getting an ad in for our event. Sign-up sheets for the event will appear on the bulletin board early April, or you can email Ben Remmert.
