Get ready for the treasure hunt. Their trash can be your treasure. See what you can find this weekend at the Thorndale Area Chamber of Commerce City-Wide Garage. Rockdale and Thorndale are combining for a giant garage sale on Saturday, Sept. 8. Thanks to Jeni Anders for coordinating the garage sales in Thorndale.

Look for the yard makers to identify the yard sales in Thorndale. Then motor over to Rockdale to see what you can find that you can’t live without. Help support this event by going on the treasure hunt and bring along a friend or two.

STREET DANCE—Also, don’t forget to join in the fun at the upcoming TACC sponsored Street Dance set for Friday, Sept. 28, following the football game. Downtown Thorndale on Main Street will be the site for an old-fashioned street dance. Meet your friends and neighbors and join in the fun for a good time in a small town.
