Our garage sale this year was a great success! $2279.20! Much gratitude to all those members and friends who made it so – donated items; sorted, priced, and organized the items; refurbished the signs; advertised on social media; set up and cleaned up; and staffed the sale: Norma Bailey, Jen Prout, Janet Olson, Julia Becker, Kris Los, Deb Allore, Carolyn Hancock, Katie Fisher, Stacey Pattison, Tom and Gisela Moffit, Laura McBride, Annette Pratt, Laurie Rivera, Liz Wing, Andrea Devenney, Jessica Jernigan, Chris Bailey, Jodi Fisher, Helenan Cavalieri, Jennifer Davis, Roxanne Fleer, Beth Macleod, Mary Alsager, and Ricky Courlander. Truly a community effort!

Update of Needs
Please continue to save anything that we could sell at our garage sale on June 10, 11, and 12 at Norma Bailey’s home. We will also include a plant sale during the event, so think about plants you might be able to donate. Right now we are in need of saw horses, large boards, and tables; please contact Norma (989-560-3952 or
firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up delivery of these items.
Next week, we’ll send out a sign-up sheet for sorting and pricing the items and for staffing the sale, so please keep some time open June 1-12 to help with this; let’s make this a truly all-UUFCM members’ and friends’ effort! Next week we’ll also announce when people can bring items over.
We will have a scrap metal drive on Friday and Saturday, May 14 and 15, to earn money to support our leadership development fund. We will pick up your scrap metal on Friday, and you can drop it off on Saturday by 11am at 306 W. Grand Avenue in Mt. Pleasant. Contact Laura McBride (989-772-5512 and email@example.com) for pick up or questions.
