WRGN’s once-a-year ”More Than a Yard Sale” event will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 1 at the Saxe Farm, 211 Bethel Hill Road, Sweet Valley, near Ricketts Glen State Park.
This event is much more than a yard sale — besides the thousands of shopping bargains, the food stands and children’s games make the event one the entire family can enjoy.
Stands will feature household items, games for kids, holiday items, baked goods, book booth, a holiday tent and a plant stand where gardeners may purchase annuals, perennials and vegetable plants. There will also be many reasonably-priced yard sale items.
A breakfast of pancakes and sausage or breakfast sandwiches and a lunch of homemade pierogies, wimpies, hamburgers, hot dogs, soda and chips will be served. Homemade baked goods round out the menu. Homemade ice cream is also a favorite of yard sale attendees.
The Yard Sale benefits WRGN radio, which offers Christian broadcasting throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Art and Barb Saxe and Ray and Sharon Cease head up the event, which is sponsored by the Friends of WRGN, an organization that serves in support of WRGN. Volunteers operate all stands and all the items available for sale have been donated to WRGN for the benefit of the station.
The Saxe Farm is located off Route 118, just east of Ricketts Glen. If traveling west on Route 118, turn left on Bethel Hill Road, travel one mile and the farm is on the right. Donations for the event will be accepted at the Yard Sale grounds through Thursday, May 30.
