SRAC preparing for tag sale
The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center continues to accept donations for a tag sale to be held next week in Sayre.
Proceeds from the sale, to be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 14 at 312 S. Elmer Ave. in Sayre, will help to fund the Waverly center, which executive director Deb Twigg said receives no federal funds and is totally operated by volunteers. Items will be kept separate by donor for tax deduction purposes, she said.
To donate, stop by the center, located at 345 Broad Street, or call (607) 565-7960 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Items will be accepted at the center, Twigg said, and pickups can also be scheduled.
The idea for a tag sale stemmed from SRAC member Lillian Warren, who wanted to donate half the proceeds for her estate sale to the center, Twigg said.
In addition to the Warren estate and contents from another estate, Twigg said items at the sale will include furniture, art, lawn tools, housewares, books and other items. If it rains June 14, Twigg said the sale will be held the next day.
Guitar players wanted
Organizers of the Tioga County Fair are looking for interested musicians who would like to play on an acoustic stage during the event.
According to information from Tioga County Tourism, organizer Andy Fagan seeks artists who would be interested in performing for about an hour between 5 and 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 10 to Friday, July 13 and between 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 14. Because the fair was hit hard by September's flood, the performances would be for exposure or a reduced fee.
If interested, send an email to email@example.com.
