You Can't Win Against Mother Nature

 The book sale scheduled for Saturday, May 13 has been cancelled/postponed.  From J.K.:

Good morning SPARTA volunteers,

After much consideration of this weekend’s forecast, and the fact that it would be our higher priced books on sale, I have decided not to chance them getting ruined by rain(either in transport or during the sale). 
(Please help spread the word that there will NOT be a SPARTA book sale at the Park Ridge rummage sale. Thanks.)
Christine has graciously offered to host a book sale, of our expensive books, at her house in August. (Thanks, Christine!)  
We can promote it(heavily!😉) at our July book sale,  and will, hopefully, have the beautiful weather that we had two years ago.
Thanks for offering to help and, hopefully, we can all have fun working together at the August sale(date yet to be determined…). 


Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
