The good thing about spring cleaning is you make room for new stuff.
And you’ll find plenty of that — old, new, borrowed and blue — at Saturday’s rummage sale at the Morristown United Methodist Church.
“We’re well stocked and ready to go,” said volunteer Vince Cattano, amid church aisles overflowing with kitchenware, jewelry, sporting goods, electronics, toys, furniture and more, all priced to sell.
The March 28, 2015, sale runs from 9 am until 2 pm. It’s Year 20 for the event, and once again, proceeds will send more than 50 youths on a summer mission trip to help impoverished families. Cattano hopes to top last year’s mark of $14,000.
“Every penny will go directly to our Appalachian Service Project,” said Pastor Brandon Cho, who joined the congregation last year and is witnessing his first rummage sale here.
Pastor Cho expressed amazement at how swiftly volunteers transformed the church into a shopping emporium after last Sunday’s service. He anticipates an equally quick return to normal after the sale, and joked that his energetic volunteers have inspired him to speed things up, too: “I will preach shorter sermons!”
