Smeltzer: Annual Summit Senior Rummage Sale a success

The Annual Summit Senior Rummage Sale and Silent Auction was held last week at the Summit County Senior and Community Center in Frisco. The sale is a perfect balance of reallocation of goods and services. Those needing to clean out and simplify, donate, and those looking for a special find or great deal come here. Keeping useable items out of the landfill while raising funds for grants that go back to the community, it’s a true community compost.

This sale takes months of planning and organizing all by volunteers in our community. Volunteers run the show, gathering and storing sale items, organizing donations, set up & tear down, sales, coming together for a few short days to make it happen. The generosity of volunteers with their energy and time and the community businesses which donate goods and services help to raise over $40,000 in grant money. It’s events like this that make me proud to be a part of this community. Many thanks and gratitude to my fellow volunteers, sponsoring businesses, donors and the community, together made this year’s sale another success story.
