Yard Sale Success Nets Funds for DBS

30 May 2019 10:18 AM | William LeMaire (Administrator)

There’s a little more available space in area garages, attics, and storage units following the Durango Botanical Society’s Yard Sale on May 25. A steady flow of folks found a lot of bargains and DBS raised around $1800 from the efforts of numerous volunteers. T-shirt sales and memberships contributed several hundred dollars more. While funds raised will help enhance the DBS public gardens at the library, the sale also benefited a lot of other folks and organizations.  The Volunteers of America selected a number of items that would benefit their clients and the La Plata County Humane Society sent a truck on Saturday to pick up unsold items.  

Jenny Nedergaard was the team leader for the sale, ably and tirelessly assisted by DBS members, Barb Johnson, Connie Markert, Melanie Palmer, Camilla Potter, Susan Hannon, Anita Albright, and Lynn Metzlaff.
