10/21/2010: "Give & Get Stuff Saturday"

SJI, Saturday, October 30: the Soroptimists’ third annual Great Island Giveaway at the Mullis Center, 10:30am to 1:00 pm. Free admission and refreshments.Here’s your chance to exchange items you no longer use for something you do need! The rules are the simple:

Check in your donations between 10:30 am and 11:55 am, and receive one ticket for each item. Each ticket is good for one exchange. When the bell rings at noon, you are free to exchange each ticket for an item on display. No exchanges, swaps or set-asides of goods before the noon bell.

Donations must be in good, clean, and working order. Take a hard look around your house: kitchen appliances, lamps, books, toys, gardening tools, books, vases, framed art, games, backpacks. However, clothes, shoes, TVs, computers, cellular phones or other outdated electronics will not be accepted. Large items such as furniture may be considered, but the donor is responsible for removal if the item is not chosen by the end of the event.

The doors open for check-in at 10:30 am. Socialize with your friends and neighbors and enjoy a fresh cup of Café Femenino coffee and baked goods while you check out incoming treasures until the noon bell. It's free, it's fun, and you can go home with a treasure!

Sponsored by Soroptimists of Friday Harbor, this event is a service project to promote recycling and reuse of items. For questions or more information call Pat Hansen, chairman at 378-5958. For additional information on Soroptimists, visit
