HUMANE SOCIETY TO REPEAT YARD SALE
The weather was cold and rainy last weekend causing many people to stay home instead of venturing out to local yard sales. Gayle Wise of the Bond County Humane Society said they still have many wonderful items for sale. They will be having a repeat yard sale this Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., at the Dog Facility on South Elm Street, a quarter-mile south of Route 40.
