Our monthly Bring and Buy Sale will take place on Monday, November 16th from 10,30 - 2. We will now concentrate on fall and winter clothing, and can make very good use of all your gently worn items that you no longer need. Also welcome are your donations of toys, household gadgets and linens, shoes, jewelry, accessories, handbags, etc. Bring them all to the Clubhouse this week starting on Tuesday 10-4. You can even bring things in on the day of the Sale itself. It goes without saying that anyone, whether an AWC member or not, is welcome to donate items to our Bring and Buy. Our monthly Bring and Buy Sale provides us with funds for Club overhead costs and for our charitable causes. We´d likewise appreciate all volunteers possible for the set up and the sales day. We will be setting up on Thursday and Friday, November 12th and 13th from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. The more helping hands we have, the faster we can finish our chores. No heavy work involved if you´re not up to it.
