Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Wide Yard Sale May 14
The SFNA in cooperation with the Sherwood Forest Presbyterian Church will sponsor a neighborhood wide yard sale on Saturday May 14 from 8am to 1pm. Neighbors can set up yard sales at their homes, and there will be a central yard sale held at the church at the same time. Individuals may set up tables at the church and man the tables for the duration of the sale. People may also donate items to be sold for the benefit of remodeling the nursery and playground at the church. (Items not sold will be taken to a local charity.)

If you are going to participate, please email Lewis Kirk at or call 787-3450 with your address and the types of items you will have for sale. We will work up a handout with a map and other information for shoppers! If you are planning to set up at the Sherwood Forest ARP Church, please contact Mark Hering at or 360-9527.
