4th of July Flags
As always we will give out flags for July 4th.  We hope you enjoy them & leave them in place throughout the holiday.

This years' annual garage sale is July 26-27.  Saturday is by far the best day.  There are usually about 125 homes participating on Sat. alone, many with multiple sellers (invited friends & relatives).  Non-resident sellers (except for invited friends & relatives) are NOT allowed.  Sellers may NOT set up in the walk-way or other city property.  The Health Dept. does NOT allow outside food vendors.  Only food items prepared by residents in their own homes are allowed.  
Parking is scarce so you'll want to arrive early & plan on walking.  You may have to park outside the tract where allowed.  
Many homeowners sell food & drink items for your convenience.  There will be neighborhood maps in several spots in the tract.  Bathrooms are NOT available. Official start time is 7:00 a.m., but some shoppers arrive earlier.  Some sellers may not be set up earlier. Most sellers close up around 1:00 but a few stay open later.
