Each year Robson Ranch After Schoolers receives many thank you cards from the teachers at the two schools we sponsor, Borman Elementary and LaGrone Advanced Technology Center. The After Schoolers would like to pass along the thanks to you who created the most successful garage sale (April 2019) to date. The monies earned from the garage sales provide teachers with cash for school supplies and personal needs. In the past After Schoolers has also purchased furniture for teachers’ lounge and lunches and other supportive items.
First, to all our members who stored items in their garages and to those who spent countless hours pricing and transporting the items, we thank you for helping with the Saturday morning set-up. In addition, thanks to the members who provided sweets and coffee that contribute to our total earnings. These members can be seen at the sale helping customers and working the “sweet/coffee” tables.
Special thanks go to Giovanni’s Pizza and Pasta and Donut Paradise. The pizza was a great treat for the members after a hard day of work of pricing and loading the day before the sale. The customers enjoyed the donuts on the day of the sale and this provided the club with more money for the teachers.
The After Schoolers are lucky to have many non-members who also contribute. We have many gentlemen who, led by Mike Conley, pick up heavy furniture/items to transport to and from homes to garages and then to the sale lot.
The Law Enforcement division of LaGrone provides students to help with the job of moving items on sale day.
When the sale is over our members are able to easily clean the area as we have the help of Ryan Lamb of Twice As Nice (part of Woman to Woman Pregnancy).
A big thank you goes to the generous people of Robson Ranch who make our sale a success. The residents of Robson donate many useful items, many of these residents rent slots to sell their items and many bring family members to shop to furnish homes, etc.
We thank the staff at Robson Ranch for allowing the use of the parking area and, of course, Scott Baker who sets up tables provided by Robson Ranch HOA.
Again, thank you for the most successful garage sale ever. The bar has been set high for our October garage sale so we will work to try to beat this
