Normal Park Neighborhood Yard Sale
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
In the time honored tradition, the first Saturday in June marks the annual Normal Park Neighborhood Yard Sale. While we may live in a throw away society, it is still good to know this is a vibrant component of recycle and reuse that manifests itself as yard/garage sales. We also celebrate this event as an excuse to stroll throughout Normal Park and visit with neighbors. It’s also one of the ways that many people first discover this part of town, learning firsthand how friendly and approachable this Ypsilanti community can be.
Another valuable element of the annual yard sale is the registration fee paid by the participating households to be included in the listing map. Much of the fees collected go into the NPNA fund to help pay for neighborhood projects.
And let’s not forget the efforts of Rebecca Dunkle and Megan Brown in coordinating the 2008 event.
You know, it would be great opportunity for a council member seeking re-election to be out and about.
