Troop 53 Yard Sale
Boy Scout Troop 53 will hold a yard sale at the Auburn Public Library on Sunday, Oct. 28, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The scouts are looking for donations of gently used household items, such as sporting goods, small furniture, books, games and toys.
The scouts ask that people do not donate TVs or computers. In addition, due to continued safety recalls, the scouts do not want baby furniture, high chairs or car seats.
All money raised from the yard sale will be used to fund scout trips and activities during the year.
Those interested in donating yard sale items should contact Diane Keyes at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for pick-up or drop-off of items.

Boy Scout Troop 53 will sell popcorn at Park & Shop in Auburn on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Money raised from the annual popcorn sale supports the activities, events and overnight trips planned for the scouts of Troop 53 throughout the year. Popcorn prices vary.
