Sentinel staff report–
A large yard sale benefiting the Citrus Heights Community Marching Band will be held on April 27-29 and May 4-6 this year, with organizers annually promising a large selection of items at bargain prices.

In a news release on Tuesday, the marching band said its 2018 yard sale fundraiser will feature a “huge variety of items including modern and antique furniture, tools, appliances, electronics, sporting goods, toys, and so much more.” The band also said checks, cash and “some” credit cards will be accepted.

The yard sale will be held at 7620 Linden Ave., in Citrus Heights, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Proceeds from the sale go directly to support the band, helping provide for items like uniforms, instruments and liability insurance, according to Band Director Kathy Cook.

The spring yard sale is one of four general fundraisers the band organizes each year to help keep the band program free. Yard sales are typically held during the first two weekends in May, and again around Labor Day weekend each year. A spaghetti feed fundraiser is also held each March, and a ‘Howl-o-ween’ event is held in October.

The band has become known for its performances at community events around the region, annually playing at the Citrus Heights Tree Lighting ceremony and organizing a flash-mob at Walmart each December.
