Book Sale Team Retiring
After six years of hosting the semi-annual GHCC Book Sales, the team of Alix Kosin, Howie O’Brien and Connie Gordon has decided to retire. The sales have provided GHCC with a steady income that has grown from about $2000 a year in 2015 to over $7000 in 2019. A portion of this income is from our 50% profit sharing resale arrangement with Thrift Books, which requires taking tons of unsold books down to Portland, Oregon after each sale.
The October 2020 book sale under Covid protocols was surprisingly successful – bringing in about $1800. We want to thank the board members and other volunteers who provided cashier services. Our shoppers all seemed to appreciate the relaxed, uncrowded and unhurried atmosphere. Even though we did not have the normal rummage sale drop offs this year, the October call for books was wildly successful. It took several days to sort the donations and it allowed us to stock a full sale.
We would like to thank the community for their years of support for the book sales, through both donations and purchases. If anyone would like to step in to run future sales, please contact a GHCC Board member.
