February 14-16, 2019

Mark your calendar now so you don’t miss our annual In-door Yard Sale planned for February 14th, 15th, and 16th. Help us spread the word—tell your family, friends, and coworkers that we welcome donations of gently used items. We guarantee that as you comb through all the bargain-laden tables, your cabin fever is sure to be cured.

The committee is now acceping donations of used items including kitchenware, glassware, china, books, collectibles, lamps, toys, craft and hobby items, seasonal and holiday decorations, videos, DVDs, CDs, and items of local interest. Sorry, we cannot accept clothing, shoes, pillows, bedding, electrical appliances, stuffed animals, college textbooks more than one year old, or encyclopedia sets.

Donations are welcome any time and may be dropped off at the Hunter House any Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. or by appointment only after January 7th. Please call 570- 286-4083 to make arrangements.

The generous donations of quality items in the past made previous sales very successful. Please keep the Society and our sale in mind as you clean and declutter your attics, basements, closets, and garages this fall.

Thank you for supporting this important fundraiser! The funds generated help to maintain and improve the services the Society provides for its members and the public.
