Ellen's Gypsy Yard Sale: Recycling & Remembrance

STAUNTON, VA (01/31/2013)(readMedia)-- This Saturday brings a day of community recycling as well as a day of remembrance. Staunton Parks & Recreation will be hosting Ellen's Gypsy Yard Sale, highlighting over 30 vendors in one indoor location-the Gypsy Hill Park Gym. This annual yard sale dates back to at least 1997 and was started by Ellen Bradley, our beloved Recreation Secretary who passed away after a long battle with cancer in 2003. Ellen was the heart and soul of the Recreation Department for many years and we remember her fondly by hosting the yard sale in her name.

Al Leichter, one vendor in the yard sale says he stays involved because he was a friend of Ellen's and that the yard sale means more to him than just selling things. He participates to keep her memory alive.

So, come one, come all to the Gypsy Hill Park Gym this Saturday for great deals on new and used items while helping us keep Ellen's memory and favorite hobby alive. The doors open promptly at 8am (ending at 12pm) and concessions will be available for purchase.
