Morris Yard Sale, 2008 Edition

Sleet nor rain nor ten inches of heavy, wet snow can dampen the annual Sam's House yard sale in Morris.

Despite an April snowstorm and temperatures just above freezing, the yard sale raised $2,081 (revised figure) for Sam's House, a total that will support the children's home for almost a month. That's food, clothes, shelter, and school for twenty children plus livelihood for four didis and our tutor.

We have many, many people to thank for their contributions of time, sale items, publicity and general good person-ness.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...

On Friday, the sales team looked nervous. The tension was palpable.

Early Saturday morning, temperatures just above freezing, the weather threatened to keep people away...

... and still they came. Thank goodness.

Brrr! April snow is no fun. Glad the tag sale was such a big success again. You should keep your sales team on retainer. :)
