Time Running Out for FALL 2009 Garage Sale Registration

The deadline for turning in your registration form to participate in this Fall's Community Garage Sale is coming up! Turn in your forms by October 5th. Instructions are on the form.

So far we've had a good response. A few of you have had some questions, so I thought I'd post those as well:

Q: What is the $15 registration fee for? A: The money goes towards the advertising that is done for the sale - many newspapers, directional signs & online ads. Proceeds above this cost go to one of two places: The Samaritan Inn Gateway Apartment Project OR directly into benefits for the neighborhood. For example, if we get a large enough turnout we'd love to get a bounce house for the kids to play in or some other activity that would benefit Stone Brooke Crossing.

We DO NOT make a profit from this event.

Q: Where will the Sale be advertised? A: The Dallas Morning News, Star Community Newspapers (McKinney Courier Gazette, Allen American, Frisco Enterprise, Plano Star Courier, Little Elm Journal, Celina Record, etc..), Craigslist,, and more.
