Spring officially arrives on March 20, but as the weather has been getting warmer and the snow has been melting, one other sure sign of spring appeared last week – Montgomery Community Yard Sales were announced. This year they will be on Saturday, May 15, rain or shine.
Fae Herb is compiling the yard sale map, so if you are in the Montgomery area and want to participate please send her your information. You can get a form at the Borough Office or Montgomery Weis Market and drop it off at the Borough Office or you can email your information to Fae at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email the following information to her about your yard sale: Your name (or name of the business, church, or organization), address, either your phone number, Facebook, or email address if there are any questions, and let her know if your sale will be on Friday, Saturday, or both days. You can also include a short list of what you will be selling. Please get your information to her by Friday, May 7. The maps will be available starting May 10 at the following locations: the Montgomery Borough Office, the Montgomery Borough website, the Montgomery Borough Facebook page, and Montgomery Weis.
This is a perfect opportunity to get rid of some things you no longer use as well as find some hidden treasures from your fellow townsfolk!
