College plans rummage sale
By COURTNEY BOYLE
In preparation for the beginning of the Performa Master Plan, Regina Hall will hold a rummage sale to both clear the building and raise funds for local charities.
Specific storage rooms must be cleaned out to make more room to house architects, hold meetings and post drawings of the master plan.
Currently these rooms are filled with old office furniture, chairs and desks — a variety of items that have been collected over the years.
"It's mostly pretty old stuff," said Keith Dennis, vice president for Finance and Administration.
"People need places to put things when they get new things. This is in hopes there will be a use for it later," said Dennis, explaining why the storage rooms were implemented.
"[The rummage sale] is not going to cover our expenses, but what we're going to do is share [the money raised] with the charitable groups that were going to help us with the moving," said Dennis.
Charities that offered to help move the left over items include the Homeless Shelter and Saint Vincent DePaul. In addition to receiving money, the charities also get to take any of the leftover items at the end of the day.
A variety of items have been collected over the years and stored in these rooms in the basement of Regina. Designated staff members will have the opportunity to claim valuable items on Sept. 13, 14 and 15 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Any items not taken by professors for use in the departments will then go on sale to the public Sept. 24.
The sale will take place Sept. 24, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., on the lawn north of the Facilities Building.
