Village Yard Sale Benefits Wellsville Christmas Decoration Committee
The Wellsville Revitalization Committee recently donated the proceeds from the Village Yard Sale to the newly formed Christmas Decoration Committee. The proceeds from the yard sale came from fees for table space rentals and permits paid by the sale participants. The 8th Annual sale was held last week-end.
The newly formed Christmas Decoration Committee is an independent joint venture that is spearheaded by Chairwoman Susan Haugh along with Councilwoman Rosie Goss. Following along the lines of the old Wellsville Beautification Committee. Its purpose is to raise funds to help the cash strapped Village to fix up or replace Christmas decorations. Members of the Revitalization Committee voted to donate the proceeds from this year's yard sale to help the new committee.
Along with the Revitalization Committee Haugh and Goss have enlisted members of the Tree Board to assist them. For more information on the Christmas Decoration Committee contact either Haugh at 330-532-5762 or Goss at 330-362-0444.
Pictured above is Revitalization Committee member Ruth Ensinger (L) and Beverly Hentzell (R) presenting two checks to Haugh. The second check was from a Columbus resident that is a native of Wellsville. Total of both donations was $533.
