County’s oldest consignment sale begins today

At First United Methodist Church



Sellers receive 70 percent of the selling price and both volunteers and sellers get presale privileges.
The next sale is scheduled August 7-9.
To participate in the next sale, email or contact Perry at (859) 893-4757. 
Garments of Praise, Church on the Rock, April 11-13
6-9 p.m. Thursday, April 11
9 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday, April 12
8 a.m.-noon, Saturday, April 13
For the past two years, the Garments of Praise sale has featured children’s and adult clothing, as well as home décor at the church, 1049 Richmond Road, Berea. 
While participating sellers receive 70 percent of the selling price, the rest, around $4,000 each sale, goes toward various ministries in the church, said Dana Sarver, the church’s outreach organizer.
Through collaboration with the county schools’ Family Resource Centers, families in need are given consignment sale vouchers for the entire family. Seasonal clothing also is stored in the closet to provide for the community throughout the year, Sarver said. 
“The need is just incredible,” she said. 
The church’s jail ministry visits the detention center twice a week and provides clothes for inmates who are released from jail. Clothing also is provided to fire victims, the homeless and others with special circumstances. 
Proceeds help the church’s food pantry, which gave out nearly $38,000 in food last year, she said. 
A portion of the money also was used for the Rock-a-Block ministry, which adopted a Berea neighborhood last summer and provided a cookout, inflatables and community projects every Friday. 
Another consignment sale is planned for the fall. 
For details, call Church on the Rock at 986-1899.

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg Cicada-killer wasps are here

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
