**The BVHS annual yard sale could use your donated items**

by Ann Hahn

 

Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to do some spring cleaning. Why not donate your items to the Bay View Historical Society's Yard Sale? This year’s yard sale will be held from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday, May 22 at the Beulah Brinton House and we could use your help in securing items for the sale!

 

Help us by pricing your items – a price taped to each item greatly helps us determine the value of your donations – we’ll even accept perishable items such as plants, home baked goods, etc. Drop off your donation at the Brinton House the week of May 17th or from 7:00-9:00 am on the morning of the sale. If you need items picked up in the Bay View area, please contact us; we’re happy to arrange a time for someone to come and pick up your donated items. But please, no clothing or holiday items!

 

Call Annie Hahn at (414) 769-7173 or Donna Pogliano at (414) 744-3108 for more information.
