September 14th is Bring and Buy Sale Day

in

Our monthly Bring and Buy Sale will take place on Monday, September 14th from 10,30 - 2. We can still make very good use of all your gently worn spring/summer clothing as well as of your donations of toys, household gadgets and linens, shoes, jewelry, accessories, handbags, etc. Bring them all to the Clubhouse any weekday from 10-4. Please do not bring us your winter clothes yet, as we have no place for storing them. You can even bring things in on the day of the Sale itself. It goes without saying that anyone, whether an AWC member or not, is welcome to donate items to our Bring and Buy. Our monthly Bring and Buy Sale provides us with funds for Club overhead costs and for our charitable causes. We´d likewise appreciate all volunteers possible for the set up and the sales day. We will be setting up on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 10th and 11th from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. The more helping hands we have, the faster we can finish our chores. No heavy work involved if you´re not up to it. If you need more information about the Sale or how to make donations, ring the Club weekdays from 10-4 at 91-457-1108 or cell phone 636 863 923.
