Please mark your calendars — the date for the FUMC Chicken BBQ Fundraiser, Bake Sale and Spring Yard Sale is Saturday, April 21st.   All of these events benefit the 'Imagine No Mortgage' campaign.  The Chicken BBQ will be served at the VFW on Route 220 south of Fincastle.  A Bake Sale will be held at the same time as the Chicken BBQ at the VFW.  Food preparation activities occur in the FLC on Thursday and Friday, the 19th & 20th.  Lots of volunteers are needed to make this a success!  The Chicken BBQ event is coordinated by Gayle Ross; Becky Johnston is coordinating the Bake Sale. 

The Spring Yard Sale will be held on the same date at the Family Life Center from   8 am - 3 pm, coordinated by Teresa Corvin.  A Bake Sale will also occur at the same time.  Items for the Yard Sale may be brought to the FLC in advance of the sale and placed on the stage.  There are some limitations on what can be brought for the Yard Sale.

Guidelines for the Yard Sale 

1.  items should be clean and in good condition.   

2.  Clothing should be donated to the Clothing Closet; it is not sold at the Sale.

3.  For this sale, we can accept furniture items in good condition.  

4.  Older tube-type TVs (non-flatscreen) cannot be accepted.  

5.  CD’s and DVD’s can be accepted, but only children’s books will be accepted.  Other types of books and periodicals should be donated to the Fincastle Library for their used book sale. 

The Yard Sale is coordinated by Teresa Corvin.  Please contact her for more information or to volunteer to help.  Thank you! 

Guidelines for the Bake Sale:

Baked goods will be sold at the Yard Sale in the FLC (morning) and the Chicken BBQ (afternoon). 

1.  Please do not make anything that will have to be refrigerated. Cakes, pies without milk, rolls, bread, cookies, bars, candy , etc. are needed.  Please bring items, ready to sell on throw-away servers that can be sold with the item. (Cardboard covered in aluminum foil is a good substitute plate.)

2.  All items can be dropped by the FLC kitchen area the day before.  There will be some prep for the BBQ  in the afternoon and the FLC will be open for a few hours.

3.  If your specialty is cookies, candy, or bars, etc.,  we will use these for the Yard Sale and goods would need to be at the FLC by early morning , about 8:00 am.  Items not sold at the Yard Sale will then be sold at the BBQ.

4.  As cakes and pies sell best at the BBQ, we would like these to be used for the BBQ and they can also be dropped off at the VFW between 1 - 2 pm on Saturday.

5.  Please contact Becky Johnston @ 540-966-3084  if you have questions or need more direction for delivery of goods.
