Another great spring garage sale

How can we of the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Association thank all of you? The yearly (and sometimes biannual) Pioneer Garage Sale grew from a financial necessity to practically a community tradition. Most may not remember those earlier years, when our members (all volunteers) were not only holding the garage sales, but also building a museum at the same time. This continues to be our on going task. Everything takes time and effort. So, like all good things, the sales must come to an end. At our last meeting we voted to retire the garage sale. It in no way reflects the lack of community support in donations or sales. It is more a reflection of our ability to provide the required time and effort to run a successful museum. We will not be accepting items of any kind for sale. We do invite you to come visit our museum and if you are so moved, to join our organization

Thank you again,
Dick Prouty
President and all the members of the Stillaguamish Valley Museum and Pioneer Association.
