YVGS September 26th – October 2nd Weekly Tidbit

By Ellen Allmendinger

Yard Sale:  With the wonderful weather, the fall yard sale was a success with $3,749 in receipts (before expenses, i.e. ad and any dump fees). A huge thank you to all those who helped with the prep, set up, sale days, tear down and of course those who provided the meals for the hungry crew.

Fall Workshop:  Our fall workshop is on Saturday, October 16th, 2021, from 8:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.. Our Presenter this year is Kate Eakman.  Saturday morning presentations are:  "Will the Real John J. Hyland Please Stand Up?  (using thorough research, conflict resolution and some outside-the-box thinking to uncover the right information about the right person), Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My! (using the shaking leaves on Ancestry)  and "Secrets of the Census (from a former Enumeration District Supervisor)".  Registration is required, please check with the library for more information.
