Drop-off donations for Annual Barn Sale


What kinds of things are in YOUR attic, garage, barn, or basement that you don't need any more? Here's your chance to find new homes where people can really use them. Bring them to Borodino Hall on one of these three Saturdays and donate them for our Annual Barn Sale in August. We'll have volunteers there to help you unload.


All items must be clean and in working condition. We cannot accept electronic sound equipment, records, audiotapes/videotapes/CDs, video games, large appliances, couches, stuffed chairs, mattresses/box springs, or computers/printers/copiers. For more information, call Dave Hempson at (315)685-6969.



August 2, 2019 (Friday) 5 - 7 pm



This sale is huge--two full floors and a huge outdoor tent! There is a $5 admission fee just for Friday night so you eager beavers can get first chance at all the goodies for sale. We never know what people will donate, but examples of past treasures have included furniture (such as the table that Nate Culbertson is carrying in the photo above), lamps, sheets/towels, rugs, kitchenware, camping equipment, children’s toys, holiday decorations, boats, tools, patio furniture, garden tools, exercise/sports equipment, and LOTS MORE!!!
