Gov. Wolf PTA hosts Mommy Market
They were all there; clothing for children and adults, toys, household goods, decorative objects, cleaning products, and much more at the fifth annual Governor Wolf ES Mommy Market sale. Customers poured in from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 24. Sellers, interested in cleaning out a closet or two, and buyers looking for great bargains, included Governor Wolf employees as well as community residents. There were refreshments on sale, including coffee, cookies, donuts, for all attendees. On Friday evening before the sale, sellers had four hours to set up their merchandise on tables they had rented. Proceeds from the table rentals and the sale of refreshments are used to fund Governor Wolf PTA programs. Coverage continues on A16.
