HOUSE BOOK SALE—MARCH 26-27
The Shelter House book sale will be March
26-27. The sale will be at the Johnson County Fairgrounds, and virtually
all of the preparation for the sale will be in March. Because of the limited
preparation time, we anticipate that we will need substantially more volunteers
that in the past.
What you can do before March:
1) Continue identifying books to donate,
store them in your home and be prepared to move them to the sale site late
February. If you have books and no storage space in your home, contact the church office and we can assist with interim storage. When space at the
fairgrounds is available, we hope you can quickly transport your books to the
site or to the church. We have people who can assist with "heavy
2) Plan to donate time in March.
We will need people to move boxes, sort books into subject categories, box
books, etc. A sign up sheet will be posted in Rockwood Hall.
3) We will need lots of dollies to transport
book boxes. Contact the church office if you have a dolly that you would be able to
loan this enterprise for the month of March.
Last year the Shelter House Book Sale earned
$17,000 for the Shelter House. We are hoping to substantially increase
this amount in 2017. The sale is a full community effort, with very
strong support from the area churches. Last year our church was
exceptional in it's generosity of volunteer hours and book donations.
Let's beat our 2016 record.
