As you undertake your spring cleaning projects, consider gathering items to sell as part of the annual Witherbee Neighborhood Garage Sales event! The annual neighborhood-wide garage sale event will be held Thursday-Sunday June 13th through 16th, 2019.
Registering your garage sale with WNA for only $5.00 means you’ll receive a LOT of advertising that will translate into foot traffic (and sales!) at your garage sale. Your registration fee helps us place ads in the Lincoln Journal Star. Additionally, information about your sale will be posted to the WNA website, Craigslist, multiple Facebook pages, as well as local radio stations and event calendars. Think of the time you’ll save when all of this advertising is done for you. Please spread the word about this opportunity to your family and friends in the neighborhood!

If you decide to hold a garage sale and register your sale with WNA, there are a few things you should know. First, you should fill out and return the registration form and $5.00 no later than Wednesday, June 5. In order to guarantee your sale gets full advertising, it is important to mail the information in by the deadline. If you would like to register your sale after June 5, you will need to call the committee co-chairperson (listed below). Late registrations are $10.00. When you are completing the registration form, keep in mind that you get to pick the days (June 13, 14, 15 and/or 16) and the times for your sale. In the days before the sales, a member of the garage sale committee will deliver to you a WNA Garage Sales yard sign as well as a stack of papers with a list of all WNA garage sales. Please share the papers with your shoppers to encourage them to visit other WNA sales. Each registered garage sale participant will get a yellow sign to display in their front yard. Because we plan to use the yard signs for multiple years, we ask that you place the one you receive by your front door after your sale is over so that a member of the committee may pick it up on June 16th or 17th. Please do not write or mark on our signs!

You are also free to make your own garage sale signs. Please note that it is illegal to place garage sale signs on light poles or in the right-of-way. Also, after the sale you should make plans to pick up all the signs that you personally place in the neighborhood. Still have items left over after your sale? WNA is again participating in the Goodwill Challenge. If you want Goodwill to pick up your leftover items, please indicate on the registration form. Goodwill will do one pick up, starting at 3pm on Sunday, June 16. Items must be placed by the curb at that time. Please see the box below for items Goodwill can & cannot accept. If you want a receipt, please call Molly at (402) 438-2022 Ext 118. Before June 5, please mail your completed registration form and $5.00 (checks payable to Witherbee Neighborhood Association) to: WNA Treasurer PO BOX 5431, Lincoln, NE 68505

Changing times challenges us to keep in touch with as many Witherbee residents as possible. Avenues of communications change and newsletters, web sites, flyers and newspapers are not touching everybody any more. Online social networks have come quickly into the picture as a means to keep each other informed. That is why Witherbee has chosen to include Facebook pages as a communication tool to keep residents, young and old, up-to-date.

Please join Witherbee as a fan on Facebook and you will find pictures of events from cleanups, pool parties, block parties, lighting contests and much more. You will be informed of activities and events from the neighborhood in real time. You will be able to comment on posts, participate in discussions and communicate with each other.
