The eighth-grade class would like to invite you to a Spring Bizarre and Gym Sale, Saturday, May 4, from 8 a.m. to noon. This is a great opportunity to sell some of those no longer needed treasures, or perhaps to find the bargain of a lifetime, and at the same time support the eighth-grade class trip to Boston. Tables are available to rent for you to sell your wares at a suggested donation of $20 per table. If you need more than a table, other space can be made available in the gym for you based on your needs and display size. Large items can be set up in the parking lot (cars, boats, snowmobiles, elephants, etc.). The gym will be open Friday evening, May 3rd, from 5 to 7 p.m. for set up, and again Saturday morning prior to the sale from 6:30 to 8 a.m. Refreshments will be available for sale as well. Please contact Chris and Mary Kate Moody at 785-2359 to reserve table/floor space for this awesome event. Tell your family, your friends, and "Come Join the Party"!!!
