OUR LAST BUTTERFLY FESTIVAL
Our "yard sale" was actually an indoor yard sale, spilling out into the front yard. Our Parsonage Resale Shop was simply THE place to find that perfect gift and oh, the prices are so reasonable. Things moved fast, so people stopped by early and then again later in the day because when many yard sales closed down for the day, they brought their unsold items to us!
Here are photos from 2018.
A little history of the Butterfly Festival
The first festival was held on September 18, 1982, one year after the church lease was signed and six months after the Historical Association held its first meeting. Activities included a parade from Neuman's Boat Dock to the church, a bake sale, a presentation on Monarch Butterflies and the release of 30 Monarchs, and a presentation of the deeds to the Association. Since then, the Association has merged the butterfly festival with the Island-wide yard sale early in September.
