On behalf of the Shirley Historical Society and ShirleyArts!, thank you to everyone who patronized last Saturday's yard sale. We had many volunteers, many donors and many customers on the front lawn of the museum. Folks enjoyed homemade doughnuts and chili while browsing for bargains among the books, costumes, housewares and baked goods. Thanks to the generous donors and shoppers, both groups were able to earn several hundred dollars to help pay their bills. Community support of these Shirley organizations is the only way they are able to continue in their missions.
