Winter Gear Sale (10/14)–Includes Soccer Gear Now Too!

Ed. Smith,

Our annual Winter Gear Sale is Saturday, October 14th from 10 am until 2
pm. I’ve attached a flyer with all the information. In addition to all the
usual winter sports gear, we’ve included a special fall sport category for
gently used soccer gear. We’d love donations of cleats, both indoor and
outdoor, so if your child has several pairs he or she have outgrown, please
pass them on to us.

We are collecting donations on Friday, October 13th after school but if
that date/time does not work for you, please feel free to drop items off at
112 Circle Rd. (red house). Donations can be placed against the garage and
a quick email to us at rexgiardine [at] gmail [dot] com will allow us to look for
items to store until the big day.

Consignment items need to be delivered at the school on Friday, October
13th as there is paperwork that you, the seller, must complete.

Please see the attached flyer for additional details. A bonus again this
year is that Four Seasons will be selling ski stuff on consignment and
usually has a tremendous collection of items.

We hope many of you can attend!pdf icon 2017-Ed-Smith-School-Winter-Gear-Sale-Full-Flyer.pdf
