Gather treasure

The seventh annual Treasure Sale benefiting the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts will be held Saturday, Nov. 11. It's not to early to donate your tax deductible items to the sale - dishes, furniture, art objects, jewelry, toys and games, anything but clothing and appliances.

Call the museum at 301-739-5257 to make arrangements for pickup at your home or business if you are unable to deliver your items to the museum directly. Spring is the time when we all need a fresh start and what better way to accomplish this than to "retire" those items that we no longer want or need.

The Singer Society, the museum's volunteer committee, greatly appreciates the community's involvement in this yearly fundraiser. Mark your calendar for the Preview Reception on Nov. 10 and the Treasure Sale on Nov. 11.
