Maine Township residents can reserve space for the Annual Maine Township Community Garage Sale beginning Monday, Aug. 4.  The date for all non-Township residents is Monday, Aug. 11. 

Benefiting disadvantaged children and hungry families, the event will be held rain or shine, Saturday, Sept. 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot of Maine Township Town Hall, 1700 Ballard Rd., Park Ridge.


The event is organized by the MaineStay Department of Maine Township and sponsored by Senior News, Journal & Topics Newspapers, Highway Commissioner Robert Provenzano, Park Ridge Taxi/Community Cab, and ARC/Republic Disposal. Proceeds benefit the MaineStay Adventure Camp for disadvantaged youth and the Township’s Emergency Food Pantry.


No donated merchandise will be accepted for resale this year. But, residents can still participate in several other ways. People can reserve space to sell their own treasures, make a financial donation or come by to shop on the day of the sale. 


Spaces are sold on a first-come, first-served basis while they last. Spaces, which are eight by sixteen feet, are $25 each. Premium spaces are $30. Table rentals are available for $10.


“This annual event is not only fun, but also raises money for two worthy causes,” says Supervisor Carol A. Teschky. “We encourage our Township residents to participate, to give financial support, or plan to just come by to shop.”


For more information, please call Ed Beauvais 847-297-2510 X270 or email him at ebeauvais@mainetown.com.
