Get ready for the semi-annual Bellaire Club Yard Sale, which is being held Saturday, October 16, 2010! The sale will be from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot at 6701 Dunlap. We need your gently used, sellable items: electronics, household items, knick-knacks, toys, and clothes! You can start dropping off your stuff for the sale starting October 11; just be sure to get them to the club by October 15.

The sale is a much-needed fundraiser for the Bellaire Club, so plan on donating, volunteering and shopping! Come for the bargains and enjoy coffee, doughnuts and fellowship!

Spookghetti and Poetry
Don’t forget to start researching some scary poems and planning your costume for the Halloween Spookghetti and Drunk Dark Poets night, which will be held October 30th at the Bellaire Club. A spaghetti supper will be held before the evenings’ entertainment, with an open mike for poetry reading and music. There also will be a dessert auction of scary concoctions. Costumes are encouraged!

Board Meeting
The Board of Trustees of the Bellaire Club will meet at 11 a.m. October 16, during the yard sale.
