Looking for a fun outing in the country on a fall weekend?

You might like to stop by the annual Bear Creek Friends Meeting Rummage and Bake Sale on Saturday Oct. 5 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.. Lunch and ice cream sundaes will also be available at 11:30 p.m.

The "Great Bear Creek sale" is organized as a fun community event to help repurpose and recycle household items, clothing and books, and even a few collectibles and antiques. With the new awareness about green living, it’s a great opportunity to extend the usefulness of gently used items that’s friendly on the budget too.

Bear Creek Friends Meeting is located at 18058 Bear Creek Road, one mile North of the I-80 Earlham exit 104. Follow the signs.
