Homes from all over Silvermine banded together in a neighborhood-wide tag sale.
The Neighborhood Association Of Silvermine Homeowners (NASH) partnered with the Silvermine Community Association to sponsor the third Silvermine Neighborhood Tag Sale. It took place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 18.
Residents of Silvermine who participated in the effort agreed to hold a tag sale that day at their home. They received promotion on the NASH website, SCA Website, Next-door Silvermine , onandFacebook and various area tag sale sites on the internet. NASH and SCA also set up sandwich boards aroud the neighborhood.
Maps were sold for $1 on the day of the tag sale at the Silvermine Elementary School.
One of the oldest traditions in Silvermine (stretching back decades) is the arrival of Santa Claus by antique fire truck on Christmas Eve. And our elves at the Silvermine Community Association were on hand again this year to help as Santa arrived in the parking lot of the Silvermine Art Center and passed out gifts to local children.
