An enormous, mammoth, colossal rummage sale will be in the spotlight at the Richland Center Community Center on Saturday, July 25, from 7 a.m. to 12 noon! Be sure to mark this amaziing event on your calendar now. If you can donate items for the sale, gather them up and pre-price them. This 8th annual Rummage Romp will be truly amazing… a Rummage Romp that you do not want to miss. The Romp has a reputation for clean, quality items donated by members and friends and is one of the most important fundraising projects of the organization.
Featuring this year Carletta's Second Emporium of vintage and fine items. Special tables will be set up for the Emporium. Carletta has been collecting for YEARS. Why? Because she can! Carletta has always been interested in history… even as a kid she was delving into local history. So this Second Emporium will be well worth your time.
We are certain that you have been earmarking (no pun intended!) items for this charity event! In addition to donating clean, lightly used items, OMHS asks that you please consider volunteering to help with setting up the Romp or on the sale day. Maybe donate and volunteer! Your generous donations of items and your volunteer help are crucial in the ongoing efforts to raise needed $$$ for helping pets under our wing and waiting for adoption. The medical care to get the pets ready for adoption is the largest cost OMHS has during the year. Rummage Romp is also a major source of $$$ for tick and flea control, vaccinations, spaying or neutering, food, and shelter needs for all the animals.
Your help is crucial to fund the ongoing needs of OMHS. Whether you donate items, volunteer to work, or do both, you will feel gratified that you have provided needed help for continuing the work of this charitable organization! OMHS is, of course, a 501 (c) 3 organization.
