Attic sale benefits community

Each October, the Junior Service League of LaGrange holds its annual Attic Sale to raise money to support the good work it does in the community throughout the year.

If you’ve never been to the Attic Sale, we recommend giving it a go either Friday night at the pre-sale or Saturday during the regular sale. It’s essentially a gigantic yard sale, filled with goodies that the JSL has worked hard to collect throughout the year.

Pictures from inside Callaway Conference Center show that there are tables full of kids’ toys, clothes, lamps, picture frames, board games and bikes, just to name a few things. If you can think of it, it’s probably there. 

Like most nonprofits in our area, the ladies of the JSL work extremely hard throughout the year. It’s the JSL that puts on the annual Sweet Land of Liberty parade on the Fourth of July, and the same group donated to the H.O.P.E. for a Day Walk last month.

It’s not a big group, but the more than 100 retired service league members and 53 active members find ways to make an impact on our community each year.  It’s important to remember that the Attic Sale is the biggest fundraiser the JSL holds all year long, and the money raised stays in LaGrange and Troup County through local organizations.   

The sale opens for a pre-sale on Friday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., but there will be a $5 admission charge, and the items will be price and a half. The sale starts again at 8 a.m. Saturday morning for a pre-sale, again with a $5 admission fee.

The regular sale begins at 8:30 a.m.  Saturday with a $1 admission fee and ends at noon.
