Treasure Hunting at the Bristol Town-Wide Yard Sale
 By BRittany amalfi
The Bristol Town Wide Yard sale will take place on Saturday, July 24th! Put on by the Grand Chapter of New Hampshire, Order of Eastern Star (The Sawhegenit Chapter), houses who would like to sell in the yard sale can purchase a spot on the map. People who would like to participate in the yard sale and find some hidden treasures can buy the maps as early as 7 a.m. on July 24th, and the event runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The yard sale has about thirty wonderful houses participating, and they are certainly looking for more! Anyone in the town limits of Bristol is welcome to take part in this fun day! The houses par- ticipating are free to sell whatever they would like during the yard sale, so the variety of items will be massive, so get your shopping bags ready, everyone, because you’re going to need them!
The proceeds from the maps will go back to the community.
Locally, the Sawhegenit Chap- ter has donated to different local organizations like The Tap- ply-Thomas Community Center, Circle Program, The Mayhew Program, and many more. They also invest in scholarships like the ESTARL scholarship that is available to those who are look- ing to go into religious training. Overall, the Chapter has played a massive role in giving back to the community, and their work is nothing short of commendable.
For those who are unfamiliar with New Hampshire Eastern Star, it is the largest fraternal organization in the world where dedicated men and women de- vote time to promoting charity, truth, and kindness in their com- munity. Men who are Masons are eligible to join, and women with specific Masonic, Rainbow, and Jobs Daughter affiliations may be members.
When I spoke to Cindy Rog- ers, the Secretary of the Sawhege- nit Chapter, she told me, “This is our fourth year putting on the
town-wide yard sale, and it’s overall been a great fund- raiser. Our proceeds have been over six hundred dollars annually, and that goes back to our community.” Rogers also informed me that if any- one were interested in donat- ing items to their yard sale, the Chapter would greatly appreciate them. Add to the treasure hunt with your own items!
The Bristol Town-Wide Yard Sale sounds like a fun- filled day that will have fami- lies going on an epic treasure hunt! People have six whole hours to explore all of the open-handed homes to see what items they can buy to
make some new memo- ries with. Yard sales have been known to have some hidden gems so just imag- ine what someone can find with thirty different yard sales! With all of the gener- ous houses offering up their space to sell some great items, people can get their hands on some pretty cool stuff. One singular yard sale always makes for a won- derful community event, so the Sawhegenit Chapter has really gone above and beyond with setting up the town-wide event.
