I’m so happy to share that we have found both dates that will work and a Lead Team of three church members who have agreed to lead our Rummage Sale this year. Which means….the Rummage Sale is on!
The dates for the sale will be August 4th through 6th. (There may be an opportunity for an August 3rd pre-sale, but that’s something the Leads will be assessing.)
The Leads Team is: Pam Stevens, Sara Steen and Julie Estlick. (Thank you!!)
What we need: They will next be looking to ensure they have Room Managers for all of the rooms, as well as a few other key roles. If you are willing to be a Room Manager, or are just wanting to learn more about how to help us have a great rummage sale this year, please contact Pam Stevens directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be posting job descriptions and time requirements for these roles in the next few weeks so look for that as well.
We are so grateful to our Rummage Sale Visioning Task Force of Pam Stevens, Sara Steen, Angie Noden, Diane Banta and Eve Enright to helping us find a new vision for how to have success in our Rummage Sale. From their conversations and plans, we’ve come up with some changes we’ll be trying out this year – from trying out a “Share the Plate” model to scaling back the size of the sale, to having a more intentional leadership structure. You can find out more in this blog post (from the April 5th Extra).
In the meantime, start saving up your GREAT stuff you no longer need! Though we won’t be taking clothing or electronics this year, we would love to receive those wonderful finds that will make someone really happy! Look for more information on this blog, in the Extra, and in church on all the ways you can help make this year’s sale a great success.
