Maine Township residents can reserve space for the annual Maine Township Community Garage Sale beginning Monday, Aug. 5. The date for all others is Monday, Aug. 12. Benefiting disadvantaged children and hungry families, the event will be held rain or shine, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, in the parking lot of Maine Township Town Hall, 1700 Ballard Road, Park Ridge.

Spaces are sold on a first-come, first-served basis while they last.


The event is organized by the MaineStay Department of Maine Township and sponsored by Senior News, Journal & Topics Newspapers, Highway Commissioner Robert Provenzano, ARC/Republic Disposal, International Bank, and Parkway Bank. Proceeds benefit the MaineStay Adventure Camp for disadvantaged youth and the Township's Emergency Food Pantry.

Residents can participate in several ways. People can reserve space to sell their own treasures, make a donation of cash or merchandise to the Garage Sale or come by and shop on the day of the sale. Spaces, which are 8- by 16-feet, are $20 each. Table rentals are available for $10.

Donated merchandise will be sold by Maine Township staff to help raise funds. Donations of small working electronics, children's games, children's furniture and accessories, garden tools and small hand tools are especially needed. Maine Township will not accept donations of clothes, large and/or heavy furniture, firearms, explosives or any type of weapons. Drop-offs will be accepted from Sept. 23 to Sept. 25 but not beforehand.

"This annual event is not only fun, but also raises money for two worthy causes," says Supervisor Carol A. Teschky. "We encourage our township residents to participate, to give financial support, or just come by to shop."
