Garage Sale

I’m getting ready for a garage sale this weekend and I live about 3 blocks from the church we have rehearsals in. The address is 144 E. Ralston Ave, Akron, Ohio. If anyone is interested, just stop by after rehearsal tonight. I’m just leaving it there all night since it is not going to rain. So if you even want to steal stuff during the night I would not be offended at all. I just need to empty this house before we move.

A matter of fact, if there’s anything a NH member wants, I’ll just give it to you. It’s one of the perks to our group. Mi crappola es su crappola.

Found a Taker – Youth Drum Set

If anyone has a grandchild interested in learning the drums, I have a youth sized drum set that I acquired a couple years ago thinking one of my grandchildren would play. My guess is that its fits like a 5-12 year old. It is not in perfect condition but as a starter you might find it acceptable. I’m not even sure how to put it all together – perhaps Jim or Jaime could help you with that. I have a dumpster in my driveway until Tuesday so I’d appreciate it if you could let me know if you’re interested before then.

Spinet Piano Available

Michael Campbell in the tuba section is going to be moving soon and he needs to find a home for a really nice Kimball spinet piano that has been living in his basement. If you are part of the general public he is charging $25, but if you are part of the NHB family, he is willing to just give it away. All he asks is that you would be responsible for getting it out of his house and moving it to yours. It has been awhile since it has been tuned, so between needing tuned and then being moved, the piano will definitely need to be tuned, and that would also be the new owner’s responsibility.

This is a super find, so don’t take too long to think about it. Just e-mail Mike and let him know you are interested. He can be reached at
