GILFORD — The United Methodist Church will hold a sale of unusual collection of books and music from the Chuck French family and others. Many people in the area knew Chuck as a collector of historical information, art and music.
The sale of these items will begin on Friday, Sept. 12, from 1-6 p.m., and on Saturday, Sept. 13, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., at the church at 18 Wesley Way, off Route 11A.
This will not only be of interest to antique book dealers but also to local people who will be able to pick up a novel, biography, historical books or music at a bargain price.
The proceeds of this sale will go to the church to help defray the cost of maintaining the building that is often used by nonprofit organizations free of charge. A tithe, 10 percent, of the proceeds will go to missions beyond the local church.
