CREEDE — After a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Creede Ladies Aid Society is pleased to announce that they will be hosting their annual rummage sale in July. The society was formed many years ago to help the Creede community in several different ways from making quilts for new parents, to offering meals and other services to those in need and everything in between.
According to the press release issued by the society, “The Creede Ladies Aid Society is thrilled to announce the return of their annual Rummage Sale and Bazaar on Wednesday, July 14, and Thursday, July 15. Even though COVID prevented this event from happening last summer, expectations are high that this year’s sale will be the biggest and best ever! The Ladies Aid Society is the oldest service organization in Creede, established back in 1899. Being such a small town, residents have always had to rely upon one another in times of need. In true community spirit, the Ladies Aid Society continues to this day its mission of providing financial assistance to our neighbors experiencing unexpected misfortune, with the Rummage Sale proceeds being its major fundraiser.”
The town gym is expected to have tables of clothing, home goods, furniture, plants, books, jewelry, a Christmas Corner, and much more. The town gym is in the old school complex.
Wednesday’s schedule, July 14, begins with doors opening at 8:00 a.m. This day will include the rummage sale, as well as the Bazaar, featuring homemade baked goods and crafts. A popular item, the Ladies Aid’s famous chile relleno casserole, will be available for purchase. In addition, at 10:30 a.m. there will be an auction of a select pick of the most special and interesting donated items. The day ends at 2 p.m.
Thursday, July 15, will feature the rummage sale only, beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at noon. There will be refreshments for sale in the kitchen area on both days as well.
