To participate in the annual Lauderdale city-wide garage sale, residents must call City Hall at 651-792-7650 by Friday, May 11, to register the sale location and let the city know if you have any items of special interest to list. The garage sale is a great way to get rid of things, meet your neighbors and find good deals. There is no charge to register and the city does the promotion.
A list of garage sale locations will be available at City Hall the week before the event. If you are having a garage sale, don’t forget to put a garage sale sign in your yard. Sales may begin at 8 a.m.
Help plan Day in the Park
The city is seeking individuals who would like to help plan Lauderdale’s annual Day in the Park in August. A planning meeting will be held Monday, May 14, at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
Day in the Park will be held in conjunction with the August Farmer’s Market on Thursday, Aug. 16, starting at 4 p.m. The merger of the two events has brought more opportunities for fun and socializing. Many of the usual Day in the Park events are being planned, including a water slide, bounce house, games, music, Puppet Wagon and more. If you have other ideas that will improve Day in the Park or would like to volunteer, please come to the May 14 planning session, which will be family friendly so bring your children (along with a few toys). The meeting will be held in the city council chambers.
