Treasure seekers and bargain hunters are welcome to spend time in the Russell area on June 1. Held annually on the first Saturday in June, the Russell Community Garage Sale allows community members, organizations and businesses to take advantage of the free outreach and promotion provided by the event sponsors. Russell Community Theater, Advantage Realty and KRSL Russell Radio are sponsoring this year’s event and are striving to ensure a successful day for all participants.
Individuals, organizations, and local businesses are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways. Hosting a garage sale, whether individual or multi-family, gives old treasures a chance to find a new home. Organizations might consider a group garage sale or a lunch stand. Businesses may consider special sales or discounts.
Registered participants will benefit from the promotion of the big day – press releases, public presentations, social media outreach, local and area media advertising – all thanks to Russell Community Theater, Advantage Realty and KRSL Russell Radio.
Printed Garage Sale Guides will include a detailed map of all registered participants and will be available to the public starting Tuesday, May 28. The Russell County GIS & Mapping Department will create the Guide maps and Russell County Economic Development & CVB will be assisting with outreach efforts. Additional printing services will be provided by Office Products Inc., Russell.
All proceeds from Russell Community Garage Sale registrations directly benefit Russell Community Theater. Russell Community Theater is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit corporation that was organized in 1986.
