GRAFTON— During a recent meeting of the Grafton City Council the fate of the town’s Annual City Wide Yard Sale was in question.
The event, which typically takes place in June, has been a tradition for more than a decade, but because of the Coronavirus pandemic, it was put on hold this year.
However, after weighing the options and risks, as well as having community members express their desire to continue on with the tradition, the city has decided to proceed with the event.
The City Wide Yard Sale is slated for Saturday, September 5, beginning at 8:00 a.m.
This is the perfect opportunity for those who have used the quarantine period to tidy up and declutter their homes, and are ready to sell their treasures.
Anyone wishing to take part and have their sale added to the list, should call the Grafton City Building, at 304-265-1412 to do so.
The list of sales will be made available to the public at noon on Friday, September 4, and will come in handy when planning your route for the day.
Although this is an outdoor, open air event, City Manager Kevin Stead would like to remind individuals to remain vigilant in their social distancing efforts.
“We want everyone to continue to practice safe social distancing while they are out and about shopping the sales. Wear a mask if social distancing isn’t possible, and consider taking along hand sanitizer,” he urged.
So grab your list, your pocket book, and your mask, make a plan and go on a treasure finding adventure during the City Wide Yard Sale event.
