continued Residents and staff at home would like to say a big Thank You to everyone who stopped by the sale, donated goods for the event, or helped with preparations.
The staff and residents also express deep appreciation to all those in Warren County that signed the petitions now circulating that request that the home stays open and continues to receive support from Warren County.
Barbecue and microbrew event
A summer barbecue and microbrew sampling event is scheduled for Aug. 21 at Hickory Ski Center, off Rte. 418 in Warrensburg.
The event is planned for 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Local people are overjoyed about the newly-revived ski center that offers an experience of traditional skiing as well as a friendly family atmosphere.
Also, hickory has been innovative in offering a variety of off-season events that have been bringing community residents together for a good time, for which many in the area are thankful.
Perform before thousands!
Those who have talent and would like to share it with the public are invited to perform at the annual World’s Largest Garage Sale, planned for the weekend of Oct. 1 and 2. Performers are urged to sign up soon, so the event’s sponsor, the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce, can line up their roster of entertainers.
While the Chamber does not pay performers for the Garage Sale event, entertainers booked by the Chamber can set out a donation can and sell CDs if they wish at the performance stage, the historic Floyd Bennett Memorial Bandstand.
The sale which annually attracts 70,000 or more to town over two days in the fall. Musicians and entertainers seeking to perform, call Kelly at 623-2161.
