From Doug Horner
I probably wasn’t the brightest soul when I volunteered to help Jack Evans with the Fundraising Committee.
After much talk, planning and debate we have decided to have a garage sale/food sale/party on Labor Day, September 4th, 2006. It will go from 8A – 8P at Foster Park, Pavilion #2.
We would like to ask two (2) things from everyone:
#1) Donations of anything you have wanted to get rid of but haven’t had the time, and;
#2) Your time for about 6½ hours helping on Labor day.
There are only two of us on the Fundraising Committee and we won’t be able to do this alone.
Regarding the donations James Fitch has volunteered the use of his truck and his muscles. He and I will personally come to your door to collect anything you want to get rid of. We will load the truck and be on our way. I would ask everyone to have your “stuff” ready to go by August 15th. We will try our darndest to pick things up on the 15th or the soonest thereafter that we can.
Regarding your time we need about 20 people to make this work. We are thinking 10 in the morning and 10 in the afternoon. We are going to have 1st shift from 7:30AM to 2PM, and naturally the 2nd shift from 2PM until closing.
We will need folks to:
#1) Three (3) people to take folks money and sell stuff;
#2) One assistant to a photographer who will be taking pictures of children and pets;
#3) One person to operate a snow cone machine;
#4) One person to grill hot dogs and burgers (any grill experts this is your time to shine);
#5) One person to sell drinks;
#6) I am forgetting some stuff right now but I’ll think of it later.
We are going to have several of our Libertarian Candidates there who are running for State and Federal office explaining their positions and doing their own outreach.
If there are any “expert” garage sale people out there I would love to hear from you regarding this event.
If you have any questions or comments you can call me Doug Horner on my cell phone at (260) 704 – 4698 or you can call Jack Evans. Jacks home telephone number is (260) 432 – 2091.
Folks, we will really need your help with this. Anything you do will be most appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your help.
