Wanted: Sale items

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 seventh Annual Treasure Sale to benefit the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts will be held on Saturday, Nov. 11.

It's not too early to donate your tax-deductible items to the sale - dishes, furniture, art objects, jewelry, toys and games - anything except clothing and appliances.

Please 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.

The Singer Society, the museum's volunteer committee, greatly appreciates the community's involvement in this yearly fundraiser.

Mark your calendars now - the Preview Reception will be held on Friday, Nov. 10, and the Treasure Sale on Saturday, Nov. 11.
