Geneva residents get ready for citywide garage sale

Dozens of Geneva residents hosted garage sales at their homes as part of Geneva's city-wide garage sale in a previous year's event.

Do you have unwanted items in your basement? Does your garage resemble a retail bike shop? Is the pile of “haven’t been worn in years” taking over your closet? Yes to any of these questions should count as a red flag to have a garage sale, and soon.

Lucky for you, the Geneva Chamber of Commerce is hosting the City-Wide Garage Sale on April 26 and 27. We will do all the advertising, marketing and signage and even distribute a map with participating addresses highlighted. You keep all your profits. There are five days left to get in on the early bird pricing of just $25 to be included. Register online or download the form at genevachamber.com.

At the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, we also are always in the midst of planning. Swedish Days from June 18 to 23 is the first festival we produce each year and is just 10 weeks away. Planning for an event that draws more than 200,000 people is intense and we need your help. Consider volunteering this year. Send an email to volunteergeneva@genevachamber.com.

Would your organization like to be in the Grand Parade, or how about your business having a float? Download an application at www.genevachamber.com/swedish_days.php.

Want to take part in our 5K? Swedish Days 5K Loop registration is online. Find the link at www.genevachamber.com/swedish_days.php.

Swedish Days is still very much a community festival, and the community being involved is not only important, but appreciated. It will be six days of fun, with a couple of surprises popping up, so flip to June and mark the dates on your calendar.

Feeling groovy? The “Summer of ’69” Geneva Chamber Golf Outing is in full swing and seeking golfers. The event is June 3 at Eagle Brook Country Club. Visit our website at genevachamber.com to register.

Laura Rush is the communications manager for the Geneva Chamber of Commerce.
