Lake of the Woods Community Yard Sale, Saturday April 12!

Lake of the Woods Community Yard Sale- By Pat Licata REALTOR
We all have extra “stuff” that we’d love to discard…but why give it away when you can make a few dollars??? If you are planning to sell your house, this is a perfect opportunity to de-clutter, which definitely helps a Lake of the Woods house for sale show better to prospective purchasers. Sweetbriar Park is the site of the LOW Spring Community Yard Sale  to be held on April 12th, 2014, from 8am-2pm. So begin planning now to free yourself of those items you no longer need or want to make room for the treasures you are sure to find! Or…simply to de-clutter. If you aren’t interested in getting rid of anything, come out and shop! We will have our own table at the sale in addition to the Family Fun Fair that we are hosting the same day from 10-2 in the Coldwell Banker Elite Locust Grove parking lot. All proceeds are going to the Habitat for Humanity Women Build. Come out the the yard sale and find some treasures!
Call Sylvia or Sara at 540-972-9680 for additional information and/or to register. See you there!

Cause 4 Paws Fundraiser at the Lake of the Woods Clubhouse on Sunday, March 9th

kittiesEnjoy a great dinner at the Lake of the Woods Clubhouse overlooking our gorgeous lake from 5-8pm on Sunday, March 9th!  And please…don’t keep it a secret; invite all of your friends!  Having dinner at the Clubhouse Sunday night, and providing a ticket to your server that can be obtained from this Friday’s Lake Currents, or from volunteers stationed outside the dining room, will enable a 15% donation (off of your food bill excluding alcoholic beverages, taxes, or tips) be given to Cause 4 Paws. T-shirts and animal jewelry will be for sale, along with a donation jar. But that’s not all–there will be a silent auction!
Cause 4 Paws is a feline rescue organization that serves Orange County and the local area. Volunteers feed cat colonies, provide transportation to and funds for spaying and neutering, foster abandoned kittens and cats, and perform adoption services.
Cause 4 Paws always has a need for volunteers! If you have the ability and desire to either provide cat food, take the animals to and from veterinary offices, to the adoption sites, or help fund raise, your assistance would be most appreciated!  And one of the easiest ways you can help is to come to the Clubhouse for dinner on Sunday between 5-8pm!
Thanks so much!
It’s another beautiful day at the lake!
