Community Garage Sale

Maine Township's popular annual 80-family Community Garage Sale will be held, rain or shine, Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 9 AM to 3 PM in the parking lot of Maine Township Town Hall, 1700 Ballard Road, Park Ridge. Space reservations for Maine Township residents will be accepted beginning August 4 and on August 11 for all others. Spaces, which must be paid for at the time of reservation, are sold on a first-come, first-served basis and always sell out quickly.

There is a major change from prior years. No donated merchandise will be accepted for resale this year. But, residents can still participate in other ways.

Garage Sale Space Reservations
To reserve a space you will need to fill out a registration form. There are no refunds on spaces once purchased. Spaces are available for the following fees:
  • $25 for 8' x 16' outdoor space
  • $30 for 8' x 16' premium outdoor space
  • Table rentals are available for $10 additional
  • $50 for indoor space inside the garage (fee includes table rental)
The event is organized by the MaineStay Department of Maine Township and sponsored by Senior News, Journal & Topics Newspapers, Highway Commissioner Robert Provenzano, Tony's Finer Foods, Park Ridge Taxi/Community Cab, and ARC/Republic Disposal.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Adventure Maine Township Summer Camp and the Township's Emergency Food Pantry. The camp program, coordinated by the Township's MaineStay division, gives at-risk youth, ages 8 through 13, the opportunity to participate in cultural and recreational experiences to which they may not otherwise have access. The food pantry, a service of the General Assistance department, serves an average of over 200 families per month throughout the year and even more during holiday periods, but the demand never ends.

"This annual event is not only fun, but also raises money for two worthy causes," says Township Supervisor Carol A. Teschky. "We encourage our Township residents to participate, to give financial support, or just come by to shop."
