2011 Village Yard Sale To Be Held

The 8th Annual Wellsville Village Yard Sale is returning on Saturday, September 3. Sponsored by the Wellsville Revitalization Committee (WRC) there are a couple of new twists added in this year.

The Village wide annual yard sale was started eight years ago by Mayor Joe Surace and Nunzio Lombardozzi. Originally the proceeds were to benefit the now defunct Fix-Up/Clean-Up Committee that was chaired by Lombardozzi. That committee was dissolved early in 2010. Last year the WRC picked up the torch to carry on the annual tradition with the blessings of both the Mayor & Lombardozzi. The proceeds were to benefit some of the WRC's programs such as the maintenance of the floodwall murals and the Main Street USA project.

This year there will be spaces available in two locations. As always spaces will be available in the parking lot of Wellsville Village Hall next to the Fire Dept. In addition to that there will also be spaces available for sellers in the parking lot at Save-A-Lot grocery store at 325 Wells Avenue thanks to the generosity of owner Henry Nemenz and Wellsville Save-A-Lot management.

The suggested donations for Sale permits is $3. See the copy of the WRC flyer above for information on where these permits can be obtained. The proceeds from this year's sale will be turned over to Wellsville Council Property Committee members Susie Haugh and Rosie Goss to benefit the Christmas decoration fund. It is not a Property Committee function but these two ladies are attempting to spearhead efforts to get decorations for the holidays like there use to be with the old Beautification Committee.

The annual Village Yard Sale is for any resident, merchant, church organization, club or vender that would like to participate in the sale. Spaces are available at either of the two locations mentioned. You have to supply your own tables. Sellers can set up in front of their homes, church, store or club. It draws buyers and sellers from all over the tri-state area.

Remember – “one man's trash is another man's treasure”.
