Yard Sale in People’s Park! 9AM-4PM
August 1, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Looking for a perfect outdoor event? Seneca Falls Rotary is holding a yard sale in People’s Park! For one day hundreds of items will be available for participants to view and purchase. Starting at 9:00am and open until 4:00pm on August 1, the yard sale will remain open for purchases and donations.
With social distancing measures in place attendees are required to wear face masks compliant with Covid-19 NYS guidelines. Hand sanitizer will be available on site for use during the day. Display tables will be sanitized regularly and sale items will be spread out for distancing protocols.
Some of the offered items include a Wagner-brand paint sprayer and power roller still in the box, a poker table, vintage sheet music, antique glass bottles, an indoor/outdoor area rug, a Poulan-brand electric string trimmer weed eater, books, kitchen items and much more.
100% of donations to Seneca Falls Rotary help the local community. Starting in the morning, attendees and donors have a seven-hour opportunity to contribute to this fundraising drive. Participation in this outdoor sale is fun while supporting community.
Due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic and social distancing guidelines, regularly scheduled fundraising activities have been suspended. With donations from the yardsale, Seneca Falls Rotary is able to continue supporting community projects.
Seneca Falls Rotary President Linda Knight states “these sale items have been donated by Rotarians then assembled by the Rotary crew. It’s a fun day in the park and we invite community members to visit and participate. 100% of the yard sale proceeds go to the Seneca Falls Rotary Service Foundation. We are very grateful to any of you who also wish to donate. For your convenience we accept cash, credit cards and PayPal.” Knight adds “please consider making a donation now to Seneca Falls Rotary (https:// senecafallsrotary.org)”.
