The annual Cherrywood Estates Community Yard Sale is Saturday, April 25 from 8 a.m. until noon. Check out the treasures your neighbors don’t need any more that you can recycle at your house.

Those who are selling are not supposed to put anything out until early Saturday morning, so there won’t be preview time. Just get up early and go...go…go.
