3) Valle Crucis Community Park Auction
Treasures languishing in the basement? Stuff piling up? Here’s a painless opportunity to help raise funds for the beautiful Valle Crucis Community Park. The upcoming fundraising auction/flea market/bake sale will be held at Valle Crucis School on Saturday, Aug. 24, and we’re currently seeking donations of items to sell like jams, jellies, preserves, canned goods-we need it all! Right now we’re focused on collecting donations, which we can pick up from people any time. We have a storage unit that we’ll keep them in until the auction. We’ll take new merchandise, art, antiques and such for the auction, and basically anything for the flea market except clothes, outdated TVs and computers and beds. We’re also looking for people to bake for the bake sale or provide jams, jellies, preserves and more.
