Madison-Marine Civic Throws Community Yard Sale To Raise Funds For Student Civic Award

Normally we’d write our own little thing about it, but Madison-Marine-Homecrest Civic Association sent me this amusing little letter I thought I’d leave untouched:

Today’s “To Do” list:  (1). Write a check for $25 (payable to Madison-Marine Civic Assn.).  (2).  Bring the check to the civic’s meeting this Thursday, May 19th, 7:30 p.m. at the King’s  Chapel on Quentin Rd. & East 27 St. (3).  During the next 2 weeks, go through your basement, garage, attic, look under the bed, inside that box in the corner of the closet, even check your car’s trunk.  Search for odds and ends you forgot existed, clothing you haven’t worn in years, books, records, baseball cards, pieces of furniture collecting dust…you know, things that fit the saying: “one person’s junk is another’s treasure.”  (4). Prepare to sell all this “stuff” and keep whatever money you make on the sales!
Clearly, it’s time to sign up for a seller’s table at the Madison-Marine-Homecrest Civic Association’s “Neighborhood Yard Sale.”  While the event doesn’t take place until Saturday, June 4th, 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m., on the ground’s of the country-like King’s Chapel, the deadline for reserving a table is May 28th.  So, do it now.
The alternative to hand delivering your $25 table fee is mailing it to:
MMHCA, PO Box 432, Brooklyn, NY 11229.  It’s all for a good cause.  Money collected from table reservations goes to the “Mary Powell Awards” for civic minded students at Marine Park JHS and Cunningham JHS.  The awards are in memory of the late, long-time president of the association.
For more information or to let the civic know you are interested, call asap either Pat at 718-627-3335, or Joe at 718-382-0812.
And, for prospective buyers: good luck in finding something that might land you on “Antiques Road Show.”
PS  The raindate for the yard sale is Sat., June 11.
