The Waterford Plantation community yard sale was held on Saturday, Oct. 10. The weather was warm and sunny. It had started out a bit cloudy earlier in the day. Traffic seemed lighter than in past events. Attendees asked for a list or map to point them to participants and why it was not promoted more in the newspaper ads. I heard several participants had a lot of activity. I hope all were able to enjoy the day and send their treasures on to others.

Come support Mama Cass Spay/Neuter at their sign-making party. The event will be Monday, Oct. 19, at 4 p.m. at Sam Snead’s. You will choose a sign to make from dozens of examples. The cost is $30 and $10 of your registration fee will go to Mama Cass.
