The Lebanon Senior Center is gearing up for its annual Unique Boutique event.

According to Patti Watts, the senior center director, the event slated for May 17 is now in its fourth year and will feature a country breakfast and yard sale.

Not only will the center be holding the yard sale, but spots will also be available for $10 for members of the community to buy a space to have their own yard sale spot within the center parking lot.

Watts said she hopes the event will fall on a beautiful day, but if not it will be held rain or shine.

“If it’s raining, we’ll bring it inside,” Watts said. “Last year it was cold and rainy, but we still had a lot of success and everyone had fun and did well.”

Breakfast will be cooked at the center and will be available from 7 until 9 a.m.

“For $5 you get to sit down and have a real nice country breakfast with bacon, sausage, ham, scrambled eggs, coffee, juices, fruits, everything,” Watts said.

While the breakfast ends at 9 a.m., Watts said the yard sale would continue on from 7 a.m. until around 1 p.m.

Watts also said for anyone cleaning out their closets or houses, they would take donations of most anything that was sellable. She said, however, they could not take large items like furniture or TVs due to a lack of space to keep them.

“Any donations people want to get rid of, they can donate it here,” Watts said. “So clothes, small items, knick-knacks and things like that.”

The Unique Boutique yard sale and country breakfast is a fundraiser for the senior center, and all proceeds from the event will go directly to Lebanon Senior Center.

“The money stays here, so it will be able to provide services to our seniors,” Watts said. “It’s a fun, busy day, and we hope everyone can come out and have some fun with us.”
