SSC Summer Sale Nets Hundreds

Shoppers trickled in steadily throughout the day July 12 to buy everything from a bicycle to a rocking chair to new zippers at Staunton Senior Center’s summer ‘Country Store.’

Center members were given a sneak peak on Friday to purchase from the hundreds of items donated by the community. Between the two days and funds raised for the bi-annual quilt raffle, the Center raised just over $600, which will go toward day trips and lunches out. A special thanks to Lori Pullin, Lala Putnam, Mary McLear, Mamie Faulkner, David Taylor and Jan Dore-Dennis for their help throughout the two days.

The winner of the quilt was Kay Snyder, co-owner of the Staunton Braves.

Local Council chair Michael Thompson will present the budget at the upcoming VPAS advisory committee meeting later this month.
