Pre-event rate extended for Treasures of the Trunk sale

The Poland Lions Club has decided to extend their pre-registration rate until the end of the month. Club members cited the weather as a factor in the decision.

"Our original deadline was May first," said Lion Judy Young. "We believe the cold weather in April held people back a bit from even thinking of an outdoor sale."

The early sign up fee was $15 per spot. As of last week, there were 50 spots left, which would have normally been taken.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 9 in the Poland High School Stadium parking lot at the corner of Ohio 170 and Dobbins Road. The sale will be a one-day event featuring crafters, home goods, furniture, toys, specialty items and garage sale items. The $15 fee will cover one of the 100 available spots. On June 1, any leftover spaces are priced at $20 each.

The fundraiser helps bring in money the Poland Lions use for a wide array of local projects. Young gave an example of a few.

"Our Lions Club provides eye glasses to those living in our community who are in need," said Young. "We provide a scholarship for a graduating PSHS Senior. We sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest through our club. These funds also allow us to provide other services as requested. Such requests have included the community food pantry, special school activities and Celebrate Poland. This event helps us provide blankets during our annual blanket drive held each November. These are just a few of our projects in the community."
