Garage Sale CANCELLED for 2012
February 25, 2012. After lengthy consideration, the Board of the CCC has made the very difficult decision NOT to have the annual Great Big Garage Sale at the end of April at Someday Farm. When all the contributing factors were weighed this decision seemed the best although wrenching after a successful 14 year history. Our volunteers have been our mainstay and we hope they will remain on alert and at the ready should we need to ramp up again.
Because of the terrific volunteer support over the years, the CCC has been able to pay its bills and have a small contingency fund left over for future consideration. Should we need to gear up again this fund would of course need to grow and our volunteers would need to step up to bat again.
The CCC will continue to function as a community watch dog and keep you apprised of any issues should they arise. We would ask that you do the same in return.
Once again many, many thanks to the 150 plus volunteers who worked all those hours for 14 incredible garage sales. Give yourselves a huge pat on the back. Your community and the CCC board thank you!
