Framingham Swap Meet - Yankee Chapter
Swap

This is the Yankee Chapter's first meet of the year and one of the best swap meets around! The meet is held in the parking lot at Edwards Church, 39 Edwards Street Framingham,MA 01701. Display/Swap activities will be held in parking lot space. Coffee, donuts, restrooms are available in a WARM Social Hall adjacent to the parking lot. Dress warmly, it's usually brisk outside! Art, and his family, are in our thoughts as always. 100% of this years proceeds will be donated to Art's family, so I am hoping we can all donate generously, I realize that after the holidays is a tough time for us all. NOTE: This year members will need to bring their own lunch or it can be obtained from several local restaurants. This is due to a change in the rental terms for the hall and Board of Health regulations. ALSO: The Church has asked that we DO NOT park on Edwards Street. This means that people with heavy or many items to swap/sell should park by the hall. People with small items or by themselves should park up the hill by the Church, in the small lot behind the Social Hall or in the school lot on Elm St.

Indoor motor display with “People’s Choice” awards. A great lunch will be served. This is the best time to renew your Chapter membership. Treasurer, Mark Carney will be there to collect the 2018 dues. Large on- site parking lots for swap and sell, so fill up your trunk or pick up. The weather was kind to us last year, hope for a repeat! Since this post sponsors several community benefit activities I'm suggesting that a donation be made from proceeds of our swap and sell activities, suggest 10%... this is just a suggestion and would be voluntary - a way to show our appreciation for the use of the facility.
