Over 100 people showed up to help celebrate the Grand Opening of The Hope Chest Thrift Store. This isn't bad considering the shop is only about 15 feet by 20 feet. However, despite its size, the store offers a wide selection of fine jewelry, tools, books, DVDs, home decor, appliances, and more. The day started with a ribbon cutting by Mayor, Tony King. After that the doors were opened and the aroma of fresh brewed coffee, fresh cinnamon rolls, cookies, brownies, scones, and more poured out onto the sidewalk. A constant stream of patrons poured through the doors throughout the day. Many of them brought their dogs to show support of the cause. At the days end, The Hope Chest raised over $850.00! We appreciate all those who donated goodies and all those who volunteered to help (Dick, Paula, Penny, Voris, Anita, Charlie, Thelma, Clement, and Marcella). We also appreciate all those who took time out of their day to swing by and show their support. Without all of you, our mission wouldn't be possible.
