Registration is now open to be a part of the 21st annual Liberty Lake Community Yard Sales, which returns 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 14. The event is being organized for the fourth consecutive year by the Liberty Lake Kiwanis Club, with registration support and the official guide from The Splash.
Homes with Liberty Lake addresses can register for $10 online at www.libertylakesplash.com/yardsales, or the mail-in cost is $15 (a registration form is included in this issue of The Splash). The deadline to register to be included in the official event map and guide is June 6. 10,000 copies of the guide will be distributed leading up to the day of the event, including by direct mail on June 12 to every business and residential address in Liberty Lake.
In addition to home sales, anyone can register to hold a sale or sign up as a commercial vendor at Pavillion Park. The cost for either option is $50, though non-commercial Pavillion Park sales receive $35 back after cleaning up their site at the end of the event. Registration for either option is available at www.libertylakesplash.com/yardsales.
The fees collected for the event go first toward the event's expenses. Proceeds support the Liberty Lake Kiwanis, including scholarships and other youth-oriented programs.
The club is again seeking sponsors to help with fundraising. Sponsors receive logo recognition in all event materials, including on the cover of the official guide. They also receive premium placement advertising in the official guide.
The annual event, founded by Lorraine Halverson and Betty Button in 1994, now attracts thousands of shoppers each year and features more than 300 sales. For more information about registration or sponsorship, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 242-7752.
