Town-Wide Garage Sale Event Planned
The Chester First Aid Squad is once again partnering with Chester Township and Chester Borough to organize the popular annual Town-Wide Treasures Garage Sale. The event is set for Sat., Sept. 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m, with a rain date of Sun., Sept. 20.
As in past years, participants can set up at their homes, and for a $10 fee be listed with key items on a master list on a town-wide Google map. This is a convenient method for treasure hunters and sellers alike. Last year more than 40 households participated in the event.
As an alternative to setting up at home, household sellers are invited to display their wares at the centrally-located CFAS headquarters location at 100 North Road across from Black River Middle School. A tax-deductible donation to CFAS of $20 is requested. Participants should bring one or two tables; chairs will be provided. CFAS will provide free popcorn, and soda and water will be available for sale.
This year, a limited number of spaces at the Barn at Highlands Ridge Park on North Road for commercial and retail vendors to display their wares or promote their services will be available. Each space will be approximately 10’x15’, and can accommodate three to four tables. A tax-deductible donation of $50 is requested, with proceeds going to the Chester First Aid Squad. The Barn is a recently renovated historic building conveniently located, with restroom facilities for shoppers’ convenience.
