NORTH READING — Plans are moving along for the Annual Townwide Yard Sale on Saturday, April 27 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Pink flyers are out around town as a reminder that there is still time to clean out the attic and garage and make money from that clutter that we all walk past daily. “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” as the saying goes.

The deadline for submitting your application to be located on the map is Friday, April 12. Applications can be found on the North Reading town website at, using the QR code on the pink flyers, at the Edith O’Leary Senior Center, the Flint Memorial Library or by calling Joann at 978-664-0195.

Remember that for a small donation the Friends of the North Reading Council on Aging do all of the multimedia publicity and each location will be noted on a map that will be available online and for distribution the week before the sale so customers can be prepared to find the best deals.

For those who do not live in North Reading or who live in a condominium that does not allow yard sales but you still want to participate, there is limited availability at North Reading Town Hall, 235 North St.

“There have been as many as 83 participants in previous years. This is a town wide event that draws customers from far and wide since our multimedia publicity is quite extensive,” said Angela Mauceri, vice president of Friends of the North Reading Council on Aging. It is also the group’s only fundraiser. Proceeds are used to supplement the purchase of items needed for the Edith A. O’Leary Senior Center or to support programs and activities at the Senior Center that are not covered by the town budget.
