The Summit Christ Child Chapter held its seventh annual “Collectables and Delectables” sale on October 3rd. Not only did we have our local members volunteering, but a beloved, retired teacher from Oak Knoll, Lucy Remus made a special trip up from Virginia to help out. As she noted, “I wouldnt miss this great event. I put it in my calendar as soon as I heard the date.” In addition, lots of middle and high school kids volunteered their service hours to help set up and clean up and bring items to shoppers cars. The original idea of a rummage sale came from Board member Margaret Strong who thought it would be a “feel good” event for our Summit chapter and the community. Seven years later we have continuously been able to provide nice items at a reasonable price, and have the support of St. Teresas to hold the event in Memorial Hall, all while raising funds for our programs to help children in need. It is an event where everyone wins! Funny story this year-we found a beautiful set of china from one of our members mother that had been hidden from the previous year. We put it out at the sale and our member said, “If it doesnt sell, I will take it back. I cant just donate my moms china.” Five minutes later a women wanted the china for the price we were asking. There was a huge smile on our members face. Items not sold were donated to Sage Resale store in Summit and Purple Heart which through our donations helps the lives of American Veterans and their families.
