Think rummage sales

SUMMIT COUNTY – It is not too soon to start thinking about this year’s Summit Seniors Rummage Sale, arguably the mother of all garage sales.

The sale will be Aug. 8-10 at the Summit Community and Senior Center, a long stone’s throw south of Frisco.

Donations of items will be accepted at the center on Thursday, Aug. 7. Large pieces of furniture (sofas, hide-a-beds, dining room sets and so on) and large appliances will not be accepted.

The sale annually yields around $15,000, all of which, after expenses, is donated to others.

Traditionally, the entire amount went to Bristlecone Home Care and Hospice.

The Senior Council voted recently to give a portion of this year’s returns to Timberline Adult Day Services, which has its operations at the center.

So gather up your surplus odds and ends (skis, bicycles, clothing, office supplies, computers, what have you) and get them to the center Aug. 7.

Get beachy at July’s mixer

To finish up the Summit Chamber of Commerce’s Keeping in Touch Day, join WestStar Bank in Dillon 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 31 for a beach-themed mixer.

Sample food and drink from the Dillon Dam Brewery and Lake Dillon Liquors while getting to know folks from Summit County. Admission is a $5 donation for members, $10 for nonmembers.

For information call (970) 668-2051. All Summit Chamber Mixers are sponsored by the Summit Daily News, Krystal 93, KSMT, the Summit Independent and Quality Quick Print.
