The first weekend of April when the clouds are shedding raindrops, we cull our bookshelves of titles we are ready to part with. After donating used books to the Library book sale, we happily browse the hundreds of selections donated by others.
During the latter half of April, we turn to those over stuffed closets. We sort through long held housewares, clothes, tools, and more and pull out clean usable items for the Rummage Sale. Many of us set items aside throughout the year.
This annual event began decades ago as a way that our community could reuse items that still had useful lives but that needed new homes.
