GRANDVIEW – The Grandview Chamber of Commerce will this coming Saturday, Nov. 16, host a yard sale to raise funds to benefit its community functions and events.
Donations for the event, said Chamber President Lonnie Hendrickson, are welcome.
This is the second annual event of its kind. Last year, the chamber was able to raise $500 from the event.
“Our real goal is to get people involved…through the yard sale we got a good response and community members were able to learn more about the chamber,” said Hendrickson.
The Grandview Chamber of Commerce each year sponsors events, including Cocoa and Carols, the annual Grandview Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet, the Grandview Community Parade, the Grandview Car Show, the annual Grape Stomp and the haunted house.
This year, due to a lack of volunteers, the Grape Stomp was unable to take place, according to Hendrickson.
He said anyone can volunteer to support the events, but business membership is also important.
Donations for the yard sale may be delivered to the Grandview Chamber of Commerce office, located at the corner of Wine Country and Grandridge roads between the hours of 5 and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Nov. 13-15.
There are a number of yard sale rental spaces available for anyone wishing to set up a vendor/yard sale location. Spaces are approximately 15’x15’, and can be rented at the cost of $20.
The yard sale this coming Saturday will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Grandview Chamber of Commerce, located at 303 W. Wine Country Rd.
For more information about the yard sale, call Hendrickson at 882-2979.
