Folks looking for a game for the cottage, a widget for the kitchen, a rare vinyl LP, a compelling mystery or history, or just convinced that winter’s over and it’s time for planting, will all find what they’re looking for at the annual yard and plant sale at St. Alban’s Centre on Saturday, May 11.

The Friends of St. Alban’s are holding their popular annual fundraiser at historic St. Alban’s in Adolphustown village at 10419 Loyalist Parkway (Hwy 33) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 11.

“Our annual sale is always busy and the buzz is strong for this year,” said organizer Alison Shorey. “Once again, we have an amazing selection of useful things, and local plants for sale. And inside the Rectory we have the best book store in the county with thousands of gently used and classic books of all genres.”

Donated items are welcomed on Thursday, May 9 and Friday, May 10 from 9 a.m. to noon each day. Donations of plants can be delivered Saturday morning between 8 and 9 am. Like any quality yard sale there will be everything from toys and clothing to cool and useful household items, as well as sports equipment, glassware and furniture. And, of course, the locally grown and donated plants.

With the resurgence in popularity of vinyl music, the wide-scope collection of LPs for sale in the Rectory season-long has been a Top 10 pleaser for bargain hunters, too. The Rectory also has an impressive selection of CDs and DVDs for sale, including television series.

Founded by United Empire Loyalists in 1784, Adolphustown produced early Canadian leaders, and is now a cornerstone community of Greater Napanee.

The Friends of St. Alban’s was formed by community members to preserve the historic former St. Alban’s Church built as a UEL memorial in the 1880s. FOSA is an open group, with new members and volunteers always welcome.

St. Alban’s Centre recognizes and celebrates the achievements of our local pioneers who helped create and shape Canada’s largest province, and the country itself.
