RUMNEY — Come to the Got Lunch! Rumney community yard sale at Old Home Day on August 8, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Town Common in conjunction with Rumney Old Home Day festivities.
Over half of the children at Russell School in Rumney are eligible for free or reduced lunch during the school year. But when summer comes the community steps in to make sure that the nutritional needs of our kids are not forgotten simply because school is out for the summer.
Now in its second year "Got Lunch! Rumney" is providing lunches to more than 60 children who might otherwise have gone without this summer. Thanks to the efforts of so many in the Baker Valley communities, this program is filling a critical need for Rumney's children.
The Got Lunch! Rumney team is seeking donations of good quality, salable merchandise to generate funds to keep this program going. Household items, décor, furniture, camping and sports equipment, collectables and jewelry etc., are needed and welcome. Donations may be made from 6-8 pm the day before the sale at the Common where volunteers will be setting up, or you can bring your "treasures'" to Barbara McElroy's barn (984 Quincy Rd) anytime and we will get them to the sale.
Any questions, help with pickups, can be directed to Diana Paquette at 978.500.0247 or Alice King, at 786-9378.
