Featured Event: Community Garage Sale at PHS

The Palestine High School Choir is holding a community garage sale in the PHS parking lot this Saturday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., but if you'd like to sell items, sign up now. Vendors can rent spaces— the size of two parking spots—for $25 each, but they must pre-register, and set-up must occur before the sale begins Saturday morning.

The garage sale will raise money for the varsity choir's trip to Carnegie Hall in March, where about 17 students will perform in New York City—and visit historic and educaational sites.

Spaces can be reserved through the Palestine Visitor Center website at www.visitpalestine.com. Patrons can also call the Visitor's Center at 903-723-3014 to reserve a space.
