The First Congregational Church of Westfield will hold its final tag sale fundraiser this Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 125 Elmer Street in Westfield.   All proceeds will benefit the church’s youth mission trip to Washington, DC, this summer.

Items available for purchase at bargain prices include small furniture; bicycles; a large assortment of tools; household items such as lamps and frames; kitchenware; small appliances; clothing, including designer shoes and handbags; books; and infant/toddler toys and equipment.  A special collectibles section will feature jewelry, china, crystal, antiques and other keepsakes. Early birds will be admitted at 8:30 a.m. for a $5 fee.  After 1 p.m., all items will be half price.

This is the church’s seventh and final fundraiser in support of its summer mission trip.  The sale will take place inside the church’s social hall and on the front lawn, weather permitting, with entertainment by the newly formed Youth Band.

“We have been enormously blessed by the public’s support for this fundraiser through both sales and donations, but the sheer amount of work involved by the members of our congregation across all generations has warranted a much needed rest,” said Joy Mounts, associate minister.  “Next year we look forward to harnessing that support in the form of a new fundraiser, stay tuned!”

First Congregational Church of Westfield, a member of the United Church of Christ, is located at 125 Elmer Street in Westfield. For additional information, please visit the website at www.fccofwestfield.org or call the church office at 908-233-2494.
