WFFNA Garage Sale Fundraiser

    WestPark-Fiddyment Farm Neighborhood Association will hold its 2nd Annual Neighborhood Garage Sale Fundraiser event on Saturday, May 12, 2012

WestPark-Fiddyment Farm Neighborhood Association will hold its 2nd Annual Neighborhood Garage Sale Fundraiser event on Saturday, May 12, 2012. The advertised time posted will be 9:00 AM through 2:30 PM. Both WFFNA and its participants last year were very pleased with their results. It provides an opportunity for the residents to recycle unwanted items while raising funds for future neighborhood events.

In addition to participation in the city-wide events sponsored by the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA), with events such as the Fourth of July Fun Run, Downtown Tuesday Nights, and Free Movies in the Park, and Santa in the Park [more details to follow on all events], our local neighborhood association, WFFNA, is planning to hold several of its own events, including an Easter Egg Hunt at Fred Festersen Park and National Night Out in August. These events are provided for the benefit and enjoyment of the residents of the neighborhood, but do require funding. Most Neighborhood Associations have found that they can fund all the year’s events with the funds raised by their yearly garage sale, and even smaller neighborhoods have near 100 participants each year.

The $10 sign-up fee provides:

  • Advance advertising in at least nine (9) Tribune Press newspapers and at least two (2) websites (including Craig’s List);
  • Your address & location plotted on maps to handed out at the major WestPark & Fiddyment Farm entrances;
  • Help-you-sell package with balloons to put up indicating your participation, inventory list, and Garage Sale tips;
  • ‘Donation Pick-up service’ truck from either Salvation Army or Wind Youth Services at a central location at 3:30 - 4:30 that day for your convenience for those items not sold.

Get your neighbors involved, and we hope you will find the Garage Sale a rewarding experience that you’ll want to repeat each year. If you can’t participate this year with the sale, we hope you’ll consider sending in a contribution instead and collect your items for next year. We could also use assistance distributing flyers, so please contact us at activities@WFFNA.org.

Reminder -- the deadline to sign up for the Garage Sale is Friday, May 4th so that we may get our advertising out (need to include how many homes will be participating). We would like as many homes as possible to draw buyers, and clusters of homes on the map draw even better business. So please make sure you notify your neighbors so they can sign up.
