Saturday was the start of the Winter Sale, and what a turnout we had. People were lined up at 8:30 a.m. waiting for the door to open. There were great bargains, and if you missed it on Saturday there is still plenty to choose from.
We were all saddened by the news that Elva Scott passed away. She was a longtime member, on the board, took care of the rummage room, and wore many other hats at the center. On Saturday, someone was remembering that she was the one who started doing the winter sales many years ago. If anyone could tell a side-splitting story, Elva could, and the stories were true about her life.
Rest in peace, Elva — you deserve it. We all missed you when your health kept you from the center. Our condolences to her family.
Now it is time to look forward to Jodie’s “spooktacular” Halloween Sale, which starts Oct. 10.
Check out our new stove and oven in the kitchen. No more smells of gas — it’s great.
Gift basket day is this coming Friday. Be there for lunch to get your name in the drawing.
