The Murray sales will be EVERY YEAR the weekend BETWEEN Mother's Day and Memorial Day.  This year it's on Friday and Saturday, May 16 and 17.   


 The cost will again be $12 to have your sale put on the map, newspaper advertising, paper and ink for posted fliers. Please have your money turned in to me by Saturday, May 3rd.  This deadline helps me determine how many ads AND how many words I can use for those newspaper ads.  (The sooner the money is turned in, the more advertising I can do.)  

 If a youth, church or other NON-PROFIT group wishes to participate with a sale or concession stand, remember there's NO CHARGE to them, but a representative needs to let me know and I'll be glad to put it on the map. The week of May 18, immediately after our sales,  volunteers from Hosanna Lutheran will pick up your leftover sale items.  You might want to start saving some good sturdy boxes for those items, , because they do stack better than bags and it will help to make the volunteers' job much easier.  Please call 402-235-2999 to schedule your pick-up time.

 Please feel free to forward this note to your other Murray friends and neighbors and maybe even print the form below and put it on your fridge or bulletin board as a reminder.  I'll also be leaving some forms in the post office and at Town Hall, too.






 MAY 16-17, 2014

If you're having a sale, please pay your fair share.

Cost is $12 for ads in twenty + area newspapers, fliers, highway signs and puts your sale location on a map.
