Do your part for the great Garage Sale

The weekend of Oct. 2 and 3 brings us the 31st annual World's Largest Garage Sale sponsored by the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce.

Every year, the Chamber pays thousands of dollars for the garbage to be removed and disposed of, and for the town to be cleaned. Folks notice that the annual cleanup effort is enormous, considering the many tons of trash left behind by 80,000 visitors or more. People note that on Monday morning after the weekend, the town looks as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened.

You may do your part in the effort. If you have excess trash like beds ar appliances, bring them to the town transfer station. If you have a vendor on your property that has excess cooking oil, contact the chamber prior to Friday and the agency will contact a local business that can use the oil ecologically - for biofuel.

This year the chamber has arranged for entertainment at the Floyd Bennett Memorial Bandstand. If you have a talent and would like to perform, contact Sue at the Chamber of Commerce 623-2161. No one will be paid for their performance, but entertainers are welcome to sell their CDs or books, or put a collection receptacle out for donations.

Free parking is available at the county fairgrounds on Schroon River Rd. as well as the high school and shuttle service is provided. If anyone in town is offering parking at their property let the chamber know, as they always hear from folks who want to park in town and they can be advised where you are.
