Tell Craig to Keep His List; Choose the Roxbury Community Yard Sale

A scene from last year's Roxbury Community Yard Sale

ROXBURY, N.J. – Haven’t you tripped over that stuff in the garage long enough?

Wouldn’t it be nice to have room in your basement or attic again?

Forget eBay and Craigslist. The Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce is offering a better way for people to get rid of stuff and possibly make a little money doing it: The 4th Annual Community Yard Sale on Sept. 24.

“This is a great opportunity for those who missed out on the garage sale event this summer or who live in a condo or apartment,” says the chamber on its website.

The Community Yard Sale is a fundraiser for the organization, which uses part of the money for scholarships and for doing other good deeds in Roxbury.

“Proceeds will benefit many areas of the community including Social Services, Historical Society, the RACC scholarship fund, other in-town initiatives and to promote our Chamber and business community,” says the Chamber, so the $25 or $35 “donation” required to display your unwanted items goes to a good cause even if you don’t sell a darned thing.

The event, which resembles a flea market, happens in the section of Horseshoe Lake Park (on Eyland Avenue in Succasunna) next to the pavilion. There will be refreshments and restrooms on the site.

Those who pay the extra $10 to secure a “premium vendor spot” will be placed in row and corner spots nearest to the entrance and the food vendors. As of today, there are only 13 of those spots available, while there remain 66 of the standard spots. All spots are 12-feet by 12-feet.

Set-up begins at 7 a.m. and vendors must be done setting up by 8:45 a.m. Shoppers are allowed in at 9 a.m. and the event ends at 3 p.m. and vendors must be cleaned up by 4 p.m.

It happens rain or shine, notes the Chamber. ”Be prepared to be in the open,” says the organization. “You are encouraged to bring a canopy type tent if you have one. You will need to provide your own table(s), hand truck, chairs, etc.”

The easiest way to sign-up is to do so online, but a downloadable form is available at the site for those who would rather use regular mail.

SURVIVING A STROKE: Quick Medical Response Gives Mom Her Life Back

Carotid artery dissection. It’s one of the most common causes of stroke in younger adults.

And while you might not associate the word “stroke” with younger patients, the condition – if not treated immediately – could lead to paralysis and even death.

Lacking Respect

As a parent of children who have attended Kennedy Elementary School in Succasunna starting in 2010, I am very disappointed that you chose to use Mr Eric Renfors  “No Shave November photos” to announce his resignation.
