Camden Rotary Club is hosting a Gently Used & Antique Furniture Sale Saturday, May 25 at the former offices of Penobscot Pension Services on Route 17 in West Rockport.

The sale will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot just south of the intersection of Route 90 and 17, across from the West Rockport Post Office. This event is made possible through the generosity of Allen Insurance and Financial. Rain date is Sunday, May 26.

"This is a new event for us this year," Club President Jim Bowditch remarked at a recent meeting. "It's an adaptation of Camden Rotary's popular Giant Yard Sale, but we've decided to focus on used and antique furniture. Proceeds from the sale will be used to support local 501c3 non-profit organizations that are making a difference in our community."
