BBA Plans 11th Annual Community Garage Sale
This year’s date is the third Saturday in June
Start saving those attic treasures or your basement bounty for the 11th Annual Bath Community Garage Sale, scheduled this year the weekend of Father’s Day, on the third Saturday in June. June 17, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sponsored by the Bath Business Association (BBA), in cooperation with Bath Township, the annual community garage sale typically features more than 70 individual participating locations, scattered throughout Bath, with sites shown on a Garage Sale map and marked by signage.
“The garage sale is a great way to find those ‘hidden treasures’ in the Bath community,” said Kelley Brubaker, BBA Secretary and Garage Sale Committee Chair. “There should be an amazing selection of items this year from toys, clothes and tools to furniture, knick-knacks and household items.”
Garage-sale space will be available in the parking lot of The Bath United Church of Christ, 3980 W. Bath Road, for those wishing to participate in the sale but not at their home location. Please indicate the church address on the application form.
Proceeds from the sale help to fund a scholarship award for a graduating high school senior living in Bath who is planning to pursue further study in business.
Cost to participate in the Bath Community Garage Sale is $20, with participating applications to be available in the May Bath Country Journal and posted bleow. DOWNLOAD FORM HERE
