SAHS music department rummage sale returns

The Stillwater Area High School Music Department holds its annual rummage sale from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 13.

Called the “Costco of rummage sales” by Choir Director Dr. Erik Christiansen, the rummage sale is known for attracting a wide range of items including some odd ones. Items at the 2011 sale included clothing, books, linens, kitchenwares, sporting goods and toys.

Proceeds from the rummage sale are divided equally among the choir, band and orchestra. The choir’s money is used as an operating budget primarily to buy new sheet music. The band and orchestra have used their money in the past to purchase instruments. The rummage sale raises funds needed by the music department due to budget cuts.

There is a $3 entrance fee for the sale and admission is free for persons under 18. If you have clean, gently used items you would like to donate to the sale drop-offs can be made from 2 to 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at the high school gym, 5701 Stillwater Boulevard North. Large furniture, electronics, televisions, large appliances, large exercise equipment, helmets, cribs, car seats and highchairs cannot be accepted.
