Kinnelon's L'Ecole Museum's June 5 Garage Sale: We Need Your Support!

Kinnelon's L'Ecole MuseumFor at least the past 13 years, the Friends of The Kinnelon Historical Commission have been sponsoring the annual Garage Sale that benefits l'Ecole Museum in Kinnelon, NJ. This year's event takes place on June 5th, 2010.

The Friends of the Kinnelon Historical Commission are a 501-c(3) Charitable Corporation whose sole purpose is to raise funds to support the historical commission's goals and museum. For example, when you visit the museum, all of the display cases and old photograph frames as well as the funding for such projects is raised by the Friends of the Kinnelon Historical Commission.

For the June 5 Garage Sale, we have several opportunities to help support L'Ecole Museum.

Donate Items For The Garage Sale!

Do you have any quality items to donate for the Garage Sale? More specifically, furniture, art, china, dvds, glassware, unwanted gifts, tools, video games, antiques and other household items. [Please, no clothing or used computer equipment.]

If you do, please bring your donations to L'Ecole Museum located at 25 Kiel Avenue in Kinnelon on Saturdays and Sundays between 1 to 4 PM. The last day to donate is Sunday, May 3oth.

Note: when you donate quality items, you can receive a tax deduction receipt. However, the amount claimed for the donation must reflect the value that could be realized at the garage sale. Simply contact Caryl Keyser at 973-838-2378.

Come To The Garage Sale on June 5th!

The Garage Sale itself takes place on Saturday, June 5th from 9am to 3pm at L'Ecole Museum in Kinnelon. Definitely plan on coming!

Although the museum's tour guide won't be available until 1pm to 4pm, the museum will be open all day. It's a gem of a building so if you haven't had an opportunity to experience it and Kinnelon's history, this will be time well spent...

Here's my post about my visit to Kinnelon's L'Ecole Museum.

Consider Volunteer Day at L'Ecole Museum!

In addition to the regular tours, L'Ecole will also be hosting a volunteer day - also from 9am to 3pm - during which interested residents who wish to help out can volunteer with the Friends of The Kinnelon Historical Commission and find out how to help expand and preserve Kinnelon's collection of historical memorabilia.

What an opportunity on all counts! I hope to see you there.
