Neighborhood yard sale July 22. Sign up to help promote it.


Have hidden “treasures” around the house you want to sell?

The Mentelle Neighborhood Association is asking any neighborhood resident planning a yard sale this summer to schedule it for Saturday, July 22, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (rain or shine). That way we can draw a big crowd — and sell our unwanted stuff!

To attract that crowd, the association is asking each participating family to chip in $5 for advertising and promotion. If you want to participate, please download and complete this form and return it by July 15 so organizers can begin promoting the sale.




Ashland playground design chosen; more volunteers needed to build it

Here is a rendering of the design for the new Ashland Elementary School playground. It was chosen by students as their favorite of three design options and color schemes. (The double-slide may have put this design over the top.)

The school still needs more volunteers to sign up on the website ( ) to help with Build Day on Friday, June 23, from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Volunteers also are needed for Prep Day on Wednesday, June 21, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A&W will be providing breakfast and lunch for volunteers, and Dr. Pepper/Snapple will be providing refreshments. School-age children are welcome to come along on Build Day (June 23), and there will be planned activities to keep them busy and productive. It should be a lot of fun!
