What really signals the arrival of summer in the Kaneland community? Hot weather and barbecues? Inflated gas prices? The Chicago Cubs officially falling out of postseason contention? All three options are certainly valid, but a more accurate (and certainly more welcome) barometer might be Sugar Grove’s annual community-wide garage sales.
Coordinated by the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry the past two years, the community-wide, two-day garage sale event allows local residents to peruse numerous sales within the village. It’s a great opportunity to get outside and comb the area for great deals and special items.
This year’s Sugar Grove garage sales will take place Friday and Saturday, June 7-8, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone interested in obtaining a Sugar Grove garage sale map can find them at the following locations:
• Sugar Grove Community Building, 141 Main St.
• Castle Bank, 36 E. Galena Blvd.
• BP Gas Station, 109 S. Route 47
Those seeking further information should call (630) 466-7895 or visit the chamber website, www.sugargrovechamber.org.
The Sugar Grove garage sale two-day event is the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of June, the end of the school year, the start of the weekend and maybe, just maybe, the arrival of summer.
Why wait until June 21 when you can indulge in summer fun right now? After all, humidity and barbecues are already in season, and the Cubs are right on schedule.
Enjoy garage sale weekend in Sugar Grove, everyone.
