Trinity Menís Club will be hosting the ever-popular Town- Wide Yard Sale Saturday, May 2, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the vacant lot across from the Railroad Berm and United Methodist Church.

Menís Club Mike Watson is the chairman of the event this year and is expecting a wide variety of vendors and items for sale this year.

Site lots, tables and vendor parking are only $10 per table, and the Menís Club will have a tent displaying their own merchandise in the middle of the sale yard.

Vendor tables will circle the large lot with plenty of room to browse, walk, enjoy the spring air and refreshments available for sale.

The Menís Club uses proceeds from the yard sale to promote and help pay for the various projects they participate in each year.

To reserve vendor tables, call the Trinity UMC office at 245-1745 during regular business hours.
