May 20-22 — LUDLOW — Black River Good Neighbor Services will hold its annual spring rummage sale at Fletcher Farms, 611 Route 103 South in Ludlow on Friday and Saturday, May 20 and 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, May 22 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The sale will feature clothing, housewares, books, linens, furniture and all manner of goods. “We’ve been stockpiling good quality items for several months and will have something for everyone,” said Audrey Bridge, executive director of the organization. “We will have the tables piled high and the prices marked low. We can always use more merchandise, but right now we can also use volunteers to help set up and staff the sale, and lots of people to donate baked goods for the bake sale.”

Black River Good Neighbor Services holds a spring and a fall rummage sale each year to sell gently used items that are donated by the community. Proceeds from the sale are used to purchase food for the food shelf or are used for financial assistance programs in the community. BRGNS also runs a thrift store at 37B Main Street in Ludlow – behind the Ludlow Community Center. Its programs serve Ludlow, Cavendish, Mount Holly and Plymouth.

For more information or to volunteer, call Audrey at 802-228-3663.
