Garage Sales

Eudora News and Informationwww.eudorareporter.com

The annual city wide garage sale is set for Saturday, June 20.  as has been the tradition for the last several years, the city wide sale takes place on the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend.

There will be some differences in how this years event will be run.  This year, the event is under the banner of the city of Eudora.  There will be no registration or maps of garage sales taking place.  In the past, the sale was organized by St. Paul United Church of Christ as a fundraiser for the Ministerial Alliance run food pantry located at St. Paul.

Pastor Shan, head of St. Paul UCC, told us recently that the Ministerial Alliance and the Church were looking to doing different things.

“We just felt that since the city was doing the garage sales periodically that it was a logical time for transition,” Pastor Shan said. “We also want to look at taking on some new mission related projects.”

Most garage sales start that day between 7:00 and 8:00 AM,, though it is completely up to the homeowner as to the hours of operation.
