Patterson School Foundation to Host Big Yard Sale First Weekend in June

LENOIR, NC (May 17, 2017)…The Patterson School Foundation will host a big Yard Sale on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3, 2017.

Friday’s sale will begin at 9 am, and Saturday’s sale will begin at 7am. The sale is a way to clear the buildings of accumulated items in advance of restoration, beginning with the two oldest buildings on campus – Gard Hall (1920) and Palmyra Hall (1927).

Friends and neighbors who wish to contribute significant items for sale to benefit the Foundation are invited to do so, as long as they remove unsold items after the sale is over. The Patterson School Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization, and all donations are fully tax-deductible.

Local groups will be selling lunches during the Sale, and all proceeds will be used for continuing restoration on campus. Small items will be displayed on the Palmyra Hall veranda, and larger items will be on the front lawn of campus.

Items will include a 15-passenger van, furniture, table saw, pool table, typewriters, school chairs and desks, kiln and potters’ wheels, metal lockers, weight equipment, AV equipment, filing cabinets, microscopes, copier, old telephones, refrigerators, aquarium, text books, household decor and other miscellaneous items.
