Get ready for a Yard Sale and “Spookghetti”

Mark your calendar and march into your closets for the semi-annual Bellaire Club Yard Sale, which will be held Saturday, October 16. We need clean, usable clothes, electronics, household items, toys, furniture, you-name-it, we’ll sell it! Start clearing out stuff and the Bellaire Club will clean up!

We’ll need volunteers to set up, work the sale, and pack up any leftovers. The sale will be from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the club. Sign-up sheets will be posted soon at the coffee bar.

After the fundraiser, there will be a fun-raiser on Saturday, October 30, with a Halloween Spaghetti Dinner and Drunk Poets Society! The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m., and the poetry readings and open mike night will get going at about 8 p.m. You can wear a costume to read scary poems and sing blood-curdling ballads. Stay tuned for details, we’ll need help from volunteer chefs, poets, bakers and decorators!
