Community tag sale to benefit senior center

SOUTHWICK – The Friends of the Southwick Senior Center is hosting their 4th Annual Community Tag Sale at the Southwick Town Hall on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

According to Pat McMahon, a member of the Friends of the Southwick Senior Center, the event is a community-wide tag sale. In advance, people have had the opportunity to sign up and have their own 10 by 10 foot space with a table to put on display outside of the Southwick Town Hall and sell any tag sale items they would like to the public.

Beginning with just 10 tables four years ago, the community tag sale now features 25 to 30 tables. McMahon sees the event as a benefit for both the sellers and the consumers.

“It’s a good way to recycle things, to clean out,” said McMahon. “It’s also a nice community event because people come together and start talking, it’s a nice gathering point.”

The cost for someone to use a space and sell their items is $15. People have been asked to bring their own table, chairs, and tents if they choose to bring one.

All of the proceeds from the community tag sale will go back to the Southwick Senior Center. McMahon noted that the Friends of the Southwick Senior Center will be working with Council on Aging Director Cindy Sullivan to provide more programs or additional equipment at the senior center.

“The friends Group over the years has provided a lot to the senior center,” said Sullivan.
