furniture, file cabinets, computer towers, printers, electronics, small work bench, tools boxes, pressure washer still works.
If you are not familiar with Sumner neighborhood, we are located between NE 82nd and I-205 north of Sandy Blvd (near The Grotto).
Unlike previous years, unfortunately this year our garage sale is not on the same date as the annual garage sale in Maywood Park — just across the overpass. This year their annual garage sale is Friday to Sunday, June 28-30.
Like it or not, good stuff doesn’t just happen on its own. Part of community means recognizing – and acting on — an opportunity to improve things when they arise. This is one of those opportunities.
Join your neighbors, business owners, community groups, public agency staff and elected officials in roundtable discussions about 82nd Avenue!
When: Saturday, May 4, 10 AM to 1 PM.
