The Fair may have just ended, but the Kiwanis Fairgrounds will be busy once again next Saturday for the 38th Annual Statesboro Service League Attic Sale.
The entry fee is $2 with the sale opening at 7 a.m. and closing at 11 a.m.
The sale will feature a variety of items from baby clothes to toys to furniture and computers. The $2 entry fee also enters customers into a drawing for door prizes
Amy Taulbee is the chairman of the 2011 Attic Sale, which members began planning and collecting items for the day after the 2010 sale ended.
“I am constantly blessed by the return on our investment and hard work,” she said. “It’s wonderful knowing a mother and her child are in a safe environment, a young girl getting the support and guidance she needs from an adult mentor, children being rewarded and recognized for hard work at school, children receiving coats in the cold weather that otherwise wouldn’t have one and the list goes on and on.”
With each of the 100 members bringing $200 worth of items, each year different League members generate better ideas. A Facebook fan page now allows Statesboro residents to learn more about the sale.
Members suggest getting to the fairgrounds early because people start lining up long before the 7 a.m. opening. Coffee and donuts are available to shake off the morning chill.
The Attic Sale is held each fall and is the only fundraiser for the Service League. All of the proceeds are returned to the community. Since 1973, Statesboro Service League members have volunteered in the community and League projects currently supported include: Safe Haven, Joseph's Home for Boys, Averitt Center for the Arts, Foster Care, Camp Gateway/Gateway Girls, Kids Closet, sight/hearing screenings in all local schools, and Henry the Hand Handwashing education program.
“Thank you for your support and come shop at the sale!” Taulbee said.
