In the next little while, over 20 of our graduate and undergraduate students will set out for Kalamazoo, Michigan in the company of Professors Frank Klaassen and Sharon Wright to attend the International Conference on Medieval Studies held there every year. As part of the fundraising efforts to help pay for this epic trek, the Kalamazooers are having a GARAGE SALE this weekend, Saturday the 22nd and Sunday the 23rd of April.

So far, they have everything one could dream of for a successful garage sale: prime location (807 Preston Avenue, on the corner of Main Street), auspicious timing, and enthusiastic volunteers. They could, however, always use more items to sell, and are still accepting donations of stuff. Your stuff, in fact, should you be so kind. Things like furniture, movies or resalable clothing are all welcome. They can't guarantee that it will sell, but they do guarantee that you won't have to worry about it ever again!

Any questions concerning pick up of items, limits on what we will take, or anything else can be directed to John Holgate at If you prefer the phone, his number is 244-2756. And even if you don't wish to donate stuff, do feel free this weekend to come by and buy.
