The Greater Lewes Community Village is preparing for its major fundraising event, the Attic Treasures Sale, to be held Saturday, Aug. 31.
Volunteers will be on hand to accept donations from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Wednesdays and Saturdays through Aug. 24, at the Brush Factory on Kings, 830 Kings Highway in Lewes.
“We welcome artworks and gently used items of furniture, glassware, china and other household items in good condition,” said Anne Norman. “Unfortunately, we do not accept clothing, bedding, electronics, Christmas decorations or books.”
This year’s co-chairs are Norman, a six-year sale veteran, and Sharon Crampton. Volunteers Arlene Matzkin, an architect and artist, and Fred Dylla, a watercolor and woodcut artist, will receive and evaluate artwork.
Jackie Sullivan, the village executive director, expressed thanks to Christine and Mark Chura, owners of the Brush Factory on Kings, for once again making a large portion of their space available for the Attic Treasures Sale. “In addition to raising funds to support our programs and services, this event is a great way to introduce ourselves to those who have moved to the eastern Sussex County area,” Sullivan said. “Board members and volunteers will be available at the sale to answer questions about the village and its services to residents in Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Millsboro and Milton.”
The Greater Lewes Community Village, a nonprofit organization with more than 100 volunteers, is dedicated to helping older adults live independently at home for as long as possible. It provides transportation, home services, friendly visits, and social and educational programs that enhance the lives of its members.
