If someone is renting the building, please stay out of their way. If there is something going on in any of the buildings, on any of the Saturdays that we have scheduled for the yardsale, the people renting the building will take priority.

Community Support Programs
EflandConnect - Efland Area Communication Program
"EflandConnect" is a community based information system that serves as a vehicle to allow community civil, religious and service organizations to share information. Think of it simply as a "community phone tree" between area organizations. Any non-profit, non-political organization in the Efland or surrounding area that desires an opportunity to forward information that others in the area might want to know is invited to participate as a member of the system at no cost. The following are the type of information shared to system members: fund raising events; critical request for assistance; deaths; or anything that your organization thinks others in the community might need or might like to know.
Should your organization need addition information or desire to participate in the program, please contact us. The value of this program is in the number and diversity of organizations participating.
