Trash or treasure comes to Royalton Hartland Library Nov. 14
BY: Metro Source Staff | November 04, 2012
For those that have wondered if some of their family heirlooms or that item that caught their eye at a garage sale are of any great value. Now is the time to see what they may be worth.
Bring them to the “Trash or Treasure” event at the Royalton Hartland Community Library, 9 Vernon St. in Middleport from 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 14, and get a verbal appraisal of their value.
John Urtel and Dave Devereau, both experienced appraisers, will be providing their opinion on items that anyone can bring to the library that evening. Items must be manageable by one person, including furniture. The cost is $5 for two items and $2 for any additional items. Each participant is allowed a total of eight items.
“We expect a lot of people to bring us their items, whether large or small,” said Mary Collins of the Friends of the Library. “People love to get an idea of what their valuables may really be worth and we want to make sure that everyone gets a chance to hear their verbal appraisal.”
Refreshments will be served during the evening thanks to the Friends of the Library group. The volunteer group’s activities support and help to promote and publicize the library’s programs and services throughout the Royalton and Hartland area.
“Proceeds from the ‘Trash and Treasure’ event will be used to provide improvements to the upstairs community room, which is a popular meeting place for local groups and clubs,” said Collins.
