The Community Yard Sale held May 15, 2021 has been deemed a success. Feedback received has been positive. Frank Berger reported the signs are showing signs of wear, but hopefully they can be used for a few more years. There was no feedback regarding the Facebook posting.
It is undecided whether to print the township maps this year. Paulhamus Litho will be contacted re: printing costs; the 2020 cost of 1,000 maps was $580.00. Decision will be made after the membership drive closes June 30, 2021.
