This delicious fare is $7.00 for non PLAIN members, 6.00 for members, $ 3.00 for kids and 1 dollar off if you bring your own plate and utensils. It is also a great time to renew your PLAIN membership. We now take plastic to pay for your breakfast, membership, and kingfisher magnets!

Thanks to to everyone for making the soggy Pine Lake Yard Sale a success. Hopefully next time the weather will be more co-operative. Thanks Greg Creech & Susan Edwards ! They really worked hard and had the great ideas. Also thank you all who participated and made this such a fun event. Kudos!
If you have ideas on how we can improve the yard sale please let us us know. Come to the next PLAIN meeting and give us your feedback.
Enjoy our yard sale on Saturday, June 24, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
If you are participating, please verify your address. If not, enjoy your shopping!

We will post our map and address listing here by Thursday. Stay tuned.
Don’t delay, sign-up today! Please contact Susan Edwards at email@example.com or me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be a part of our community yard sale. PLAIN requests a $5 donation to provide signage, advertising, balloons for each home, listing of addresses, and maps for our shoppers; the City of Pine Lake is waiving the $10 deposit for each household who participates in our shopping bonanza. We have over 30 households already! Please send us your name, address, email, and cell phone. We’ll publish our list of addresses next Wednesday.
For our dear Flower Children, who’s homes haven’t had the traffic that the Tree People have had for past Yard Sales. So, for the folks on the Flower Side (north), we will have maps that instruct shoppers to being on Ridge and shop their way to Poplar. Our address listing will begin at Ridge. We will have signs pointing to the Flower Side to encourage our visitors to shop there first. We’ll have maps and address listings at the bulletin boards and other locations. We’ll provide maps and address listings to each participating household, too.
The American Kidney Fund will pick-up your leftover items at 4:00 PM, if you like. NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE YARD SALE TO HAVE AKF PICK-UP YOUR ITEMS. Let us know that you want AKF pick-up only that day.

Got Junk?!! Time to clean-out those 8 Track tapes and clothes you out grew three years ago. Join PLAIN’s Pine Lake city-wide yard sale, Saturday, June 24, 10-4 pm. Sponsored by PLAIN, multiple households will have yard sales this day. The city is waiving the $10 yard sale deposit for each household; in lieu of the deposit, PLAIN requests a $5 donation for your household to participate.
Here’s what you get for your $5 donation: PLAIN will advertise the event with entrance signs and flyers, make a map with an address listing of participating households, add balloons to each yard sale house for ease of finding, and arrange pick up for any items people who like to donate to
the American Kidney Fund at the end of the yard sale. If we get 25 households participating, the American Kidney Foundation will make a special pick up that Saturday at 4:00 for items in bags or boxes, no furniture pick up. Please put a sign on your bags/boxes at the end of the sale that you wish to donate with “For AKF Pick-up”.
While you may have yard sale signs on your property, please do not make individual yard sale signs posted around the city; we’ll post signs at our entrances
and around Pine Lake, have flyers for everyone to distribute, and will use all social media, including craigslist, to advertise the event. We must remove all signage at the end of the day.
The deadline to participate is Saturday, June 17.
Please email Susan Edwards at email@example.com or message her on FB to let PLAIN know if you’d like to participate in this multi home yard sale event,
and would like pick up at the end for any donated items.
You may pay the $5 donation to PLAIN; Greg Creech will accept check or cash for PLAIN – make checks payable to PLAIN. Please contact Greg at 404-403-5391 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for pick-up/drop
off of your $5 donation. We will discuss this at our PLAIN meeting this Thursday, June 15 at 7:00 PM – Beach House.
