MANA Yard Sale: Save the Date [October 1]


We are gearing up for our second annual Medlock Area Yard Sale. Last year we had a very successful sale with about 17 families participating. Proceeds are yours to keep or you can donate them to MANA if you would like. There is a small $10 participation fee per household to help cover costs (advertising, printing, maps, etc.). This year we are hoping to pair with Clairmont Heights to offer an even bigger sale area. More details will be coming soon about the actual sale and how to participate.

In the meantime, we are looking for VOLUNTEERS to help coordinate the overall planning of the event. In addition, we could use help with:

Advertising (newspapers, local businesses, Craiglist/online advertising, etc.)
Making signs
Putting out signs
Picking up signs
Getting printing done
Ordering balloons (for participating houses)
Delivering balloons to each participating house
Coordinating with a charity to pick up what does not sell that people would like to donate
Replenishing maps to designated areas throughout the neighborhood before and on sale day

If you would like to volunteer for any project, large or small, we would greatly appreciate any time you have to offer. It's a fun way to be involved with the community and meet your neighbors. Please contact either Deb Elkin (, 404-320-6063) or Bev Monroe (, 404-321-9683) to volunteer or with any questions or ideas you might have.
