from the Larchmont Avenue Church:
The Larchmont Avenue Church will hold its annual rummage sale May 1 – 3, 2014, at the Larchmont Avenue Church, 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont, NY.
This much anticipated annual event has drawn huge crowds for over 30 years, because of its large assortment of new and gently used items at low prices. People line up early to get the best selection of clothing, jewelry, sporting goods, furniture, toys, electronics, linens, and many other items. The annual event draws bargain hunters and savvy shoppers from all over Westchester.
The Rummage Sale is also a great recycling tool. Jane Land, who has worked the Rummage Sale for as long as Ms. Hiemstra and chaired it for three years, said “It’s great seeing things get a second life with people who need them, rather than ending up in the trash.”
Mary Joyce Beringer, another long-time organizer and former chair adds “We work really hardphysically! We get really tired, but we love it.”
All their hard work pays off, not onlyfor happy purchasers, but also for the organizations which benefit from the results of the sale.
The organizers are quick to point out that proceeds from the sale go to great causes—either in the community or to improvements in the church. In the past, funds have gone to help victims of flooding in Mamaroneck; and this year, the proceeds from the Sale will go to one of LAC’s Helping HandsCentennial Fund’s local charities.
The hours of the LAC Rummage Sale are: Thursday, May 1, 7:00 – 9:00PM; Friday, May 2, 9:30AM – 4:00PM; Saturday, May 3, 9:00AM – Noon.
The Larchmont Avenue Church is located at 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont, New York. For more information about the Rummage Sale or the Church, call 914-834-1800or visit the LAC website at www.lacny.org.And like us on Facebook.
