Humane society accepts items for garage sale

Ready to do some spring cleaning and unsure what to do with all the things you don't use anymore?

The Lakes Area Humane Society can help.

The shelter is gearing up for it's annual "Happily Ever After" Garage Sale, which will be held on Saturday, June 5 and is seeking donations of salable items.

To donate, items may be brought to the west side of the Runestone Community Center (located at the Douglas County Fairgrounds) on June 2 and 3 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and June 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Note: Some items can't be accepted, including computers, TVs, large appliances (such as ovens or refrigerators) and older exercise equipment.

The sale will be held on Saturday, June 5 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. All proceeds from this fundraising event will go directly to provide care for the animals served by the shelter.
