• Big 4 Sale Christian Union Church, Sat., May 30, 9-1

Winter doldrums have set in! House was all a-clutter. It was time to clean and to putter, box and bag those clothes, housewares and books and we ran them to Christian Union Church without a second Look. All crystal, dishes, lines, glasses collecting much dust, the sports equipment and toys outgrown are a must. Those pieces of furniture once special and needed, that purse so loved but now too baubled and beaded. So come and see our bags and boxes one and all. In addition to the yard sale there will be a bake sale, car wash, and lobster and chicken salad rolls for sale. Church on West Main St. (Rte. 225), West Groton. More info. 978 448-5480
