Garage Sale & Cookie Extravaganza Set for June 21

The Humane Society of the High Plains is gearing up for its biennial Garage Sale and Cookie Extravaganza to be held in the former Fashion Bug store in The Mall from 8 a.m. until noon June 21.

            Garage sale items that didn’t survive spring cleaning and need to be discarded may be brought to the Virginia Miller Animal Shelter, 2050 East Old Highway 40, between now and June 18. Hours are from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekdays and from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. on weekends. All items must be in good repair, clean and work. Clothing, purses, shoes, tires, mattresses, as well as children’s mechanical toys, cribs, strollers, baby buggies and other children’s furniture are not accepted.  The shelter staff and board don’t want to risk having children’s items for sale that have been recalled.

            June 19 and 20, items may be brought to the former Fashion Bug store in The Mall. Call the shelter at 625-5252 for times.

             A large variety of homemade cookies, baked by shelter staff and Humane Society board, will also be for sale that Saturday for the cookie monsters lurking in your house—plenty of chocolate chip and brownies, as well as Snickerdoodles, Greek Butter cookies, Lemon Sugar, Orange Chewy, Frosted Walnut, Nutella Banana and Peanut Butter to tempt a sweet tooth.

            The proceeds of the sale will be used to spay and neuter homeless animals, so they will be more apt to be adopted into forever homes.
