Solid Rock Church holding rummage sale today

- By Larry McGuire

BIG RUN — Many people wait for this event the entire year: the Solid Rock Community Church Rummage Sale.

Today, the Solid Rock Community Church in Big Run is hosting its annual rummage sale.

Beside the usual selection of useful items and gifts, the church has been provided some very unique pieces for considerat­ion.

Kim Fugate, project manager for the sale, said there is a wonderful selection of furniture, antiques, tools, household items, decoration­s, toys, clothes and miscellane­ous items.

“We have really been blessed this year with a plethora of unique donations,” Fugate said. “I believe people will be very pleased with the selections and quality of this year’s contributi­ons.”

Fugate expressed the church’s gratitude to all of the individual­s who donated items to make the event possible.

She said they have worked hard on this year’s offerings of delectable homemade soups, baked goods, sandwiches and — best of all — their famous smoked four-cheese mac and cheese.

“All of these are guaranteed to delight your taste buds,” Fugate said. “There will also be ample opportunit­ies for good fellowship and lots of laughter.”

Fugate said the church is in the beginning stages of the restoratio­n of its 122-year-old stain-glass windows.

“They are greatly in need of repair; subsequent­ly, monies collected will be going toward that project.

Doors open at 9 a.m. and close at 3 p.m. today. Solid Rock Community Church is located at 100 Church St., Big Run, PA 15715.
