Another Goodie from My Inbox - Sept 20th Used Curriculum Sale

You know you have them...
Books you are never going to use again
Puzzles and games your kids have outgrown
Movies and computer games that they don't watch or play;
Things you thought your child would enjoy but they didn't \


Here's your chance to shed some excess, find treasures in other
people's excess, and support a worthy cause all at the same time!

What: Used Curriculum Sale /Kid's Sale(no, you can't sell your kids)
and New Homeschooler Welcome!
Oh, and there's a Car Wash and Bake Sale too!

-- SELL stuff and finally find the kitchen table!
-- Have your child with the passion for beading, reading,
sewing, tye-dying, rock collecting, or whatever else
they love to make sell their wares.
(no baked goods please -- unless your want to donate it to
the bake sale! In which case, Thank you!)
-- SHOP for new to you items and ideas
-- VISIT with fellow homeschoolers from around the county.
-- NEW HOMESCHOOLERS -- here's your chance to chat with some of us
who have been around for a while. We will bring
handouts from CHN and other useful information.

When: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2008. 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
(and don't forget the Car Wash and Bake Sale at the same time!)

Where: Our Mother of Confidence Catholic Church - 3131 Governor Dr.
(Corner of Governor Rd. and Regents Rd. /Clairemont Mesa Bvd.
Easy access from 52 or 805)

Who: Did I mention that my husband also happens to be the Youth
Minister at the Parish? This is our annual Youth Group Car
Wash and we are adding in the Bake Sale and Curriculum Sale
this year because I know people with stuff to sell.
And dirty cars.

How Much:
Shoppers - FREE (ok, the stuff isn't but there is no cost to shop!)
Sellers -- $8 rents you a large rectangular table.
$5 rents you a smaller circular table.
$5 for kids selling what they have created.
If you just show up and want a table, the cost will be
$10 per table, and you get whatever tables are left.
Donators -- Have stuff to get rid of but don't want to have your
own table? We will be glad to take it as a donation
and sell it for you! The money will support our Youth
Ministry program. We'd also be happy to take baked
goods donations.
Dirty Cars -- Car Wash tickets are $5 before the event, and
$7 on the day of the event. Giggling at the wet
teenagers is a free bonus.
Hungry People -- Baked Goods will be sold along with coffee,
juice, and water bottles. :-)

BONUS: For those who don't want to haul away the stuff you no longer
want but didn't sell -- we will arrange to have any leftovers donated
to appropriate sources. (Libraries, Dr's offices, Polinski Center,
Rachael's House, Fr. Joe, etc.)

I can't wait to see you all!!

A Quote for the Day

Becoming responsible adults is no longer a matter of whether children hang up there pajamas or put dirty towels in the hamper, but whether they care about themselves and others -- and whether they see everyday chores as related to how we treat this planet. - Eda LeShan
