Thank for helping to make this one of the best Trash & Treasure sales yet.  We had a great turnout from Forum 35 members, with 21 volunteers showing up for our three-day service project, totaling 121 hours of service to the massive Inner Wheel Attic Trash & Treasure Sale.  With your help, we increased our service hours at this event a whopping 44 hours over last year!!
