Community member’s passing brings changes to the event
Many of you may already know that Concordia resident Donna Mae Carrier, age 58, passed away in December last year. She died after a short, fierce battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Donna was a wonderful mother to her three daughters, a caregiver to friends and family in need and a tireless volunteer in her community, including with Concordia Neighborhood Association where, for many years, she coordinated our neighborhood’s annual yard sale event.
Because of the huge void left where Donna’s energy once played a key role, the annual garage sale will be just a sliver of its former self this year. While CNA will advertise the event, scheduled for August 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., CNA will not be providing maps, signs, or post-sale charity donations.
So if you’re looking to clear out your overloaded garage, basement or closets burdened by items that still have a useful and potentially saleable life, CNA will do the advertising for the event. In that advertising we’ll encourage people to drive around Concordia for the best bargains to be found in town that day. Also consider posting your specific information and address on Nextdoor.com and craigslist to attract more customers.
For 2017, anyone interested in bringing the “full-meal-deal” event back to Concordia to carry on the annual garage sale with the vigor that respects Donna’s legacy, please contact CNA’s Social Committee at email@example.com. Program aims to provide health & wellness for student, community success
