On Saturday August 14, from 11 am until 3 pm, Newtown Congregational Church will host a community-wide yard sale at 14 West Street.
The public is invited to shop from booths hosted by location organizations, clubs, nonprofits, and individuals who will provide their items and plenty of space for folks to enjoy the shopping experience.
The event is not a church fundraiser. There is no charge to participate, and the money made by each seller is theirs to keep.
Linda Weidenhamer and Marie Sturdevant are co-chairing the event for the church.
“Newtown Congregational Church has a long history of community involvement, using time, talent, and compassion to help others,” the co-chairs noted.
Sturdevant told The Newtown Bee this week that as of July 26 she and Weidenhamer had confirmed participation by the Cornerstone, Newtown Woman’s Club, Liberty at Newtown, Newtown Lions Club, Philanthropic Education Organization, and individuals.
Openings are still available for those who would like to participate. Call 203-747-5627 or 203-426-4529 by August 11 for additional information or to reserve a space.
