Harlem Civic Association Will Host a Community Yard Sale5
July 26, 2023
The Harlem Civic Association invites Hi-Line residents to their Community Yard Sale and Community Appreciation BBQ on Saturday, August 5. The event will take place in Harlem City Park from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
In addition to the opportunity to browse items offered for sale, the Civic Association will be serving a barbecue lunch from 11:30 - 2:00 p.m.
The Civic Association is encouraging people seeking a venue for a yard sale to join the crew in the park to liquidate those no longer needed items. Vendors are also encouraged to reserve a space to sell their craft items or garden produce.
According to one of the event’s organizers, Kayla Hudon, the Civic Association will provide space for any individual who would like to set up a table area at the yard sale. Those who bring their own tables can set up for no cost; however, those who need a table can reserve one with the Association and pay a $15.00 donation per table.
“Basically, they can have a yard sale or vendor table or anything they want in their space, and the only thing it costs is if the Civic provides a table. Then, we ask for a $15 donation per table. But if they bring their own table, it doesn't cost anything,” Hudon explained.
Hudon added: “As long as anyone interested contacts us before Saturday, August 5, we will be sure to hold a space for them. We just need enough time to mark out spots in the park.”
To reserve a 10’ x 20’ yard sale location, people are encouraged to call or text Hudon at 406-945-0090. Interested vendors can also reach out to Becky at 406-353-7427 or contact the Harlem Civic Association through Facebook Messenger. Last week, a pair of young entrepreneurs had already reserved their spot for a lemonade stand.
Regarding the Community Appreciation BBQ, Harlem Civic Association members will be serving salads, hotdogs, and hamburgers. The event is a replacement of sorts for the Fourth of July picnic that didn’t happen.
“Some people were disappointed that we didn't have the Fourth of July picnic in the park like we normally do, but we didn't have enough members around to put it on. Unfortunately, we don't have that many members in general, so unless we can get more people to join the Civic, we're kind of limited on events that we can host,” Hudon stated.
The Civic Association anticipates a good turn-out for this community event.
