We recently had a big estate sale at my parents home and sold their belongings that I could not keep. After bringing a 10 ft. U-Haul to Colorado filled with momentoes, there were still over 2,000 items to sell! In 40 plus years of marriage and teaching, my parents had accumulated such lovely things. It was difficult to leave so much behind, but I am fortunate so many from the community were able to purchase these items to use in their own homes.
The proceeds from the sale will be used to fund the scholarship for several more years, so that was the positive side to saying, "Goodbye" to so many memories and momentoes. We currently received over, $4,000 from the sale of my parents things to use in the coming years for the scholarship fund! I am so happy we will be able to award $500.00 scholarships to student teachers and existing teachers within Tehama County! Thank you for supporting "The Apple Tree" and I will keep you posted on our next round of applicants in 2010!
