The 7th Annual Lyman Townwide Yard Sale will be held on Friday and Saturday, June 25—26, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Dozens of families participate in this annual event, which brings hundreds of people through town. There is something for everyone to be found at sales through-out the town.

The Lyman Library will hold a book sale to raise money for purchasing additional popular books and needed items at Patty Cook’s yard sale at 31098 W. Main Street.  Elaine Kohler is in charge of the Lyman Library and she is currently accepting book donations for the library and the sale. If you have donations of books, puzzles or movies, you can drop your donations off during the library’s regular operating hours of Tuesday and Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m.

A craft sale will be held in the old Town Hall building on W. Third Street behind the Fire Department. Tables are included in the space rental. The cost to participate in the yard sale or craft sale is just $5 and includes many forms of advertisement. This will include both sale days and inclusion on the map, as well as multiple advertisements and a classified ad donated by Patty Cook for the event. Because of town policy, checks need to be made payable to Tammie Werner and not the Town of Lyman.

Money raised will be used to benefit the town. Organizers Patty Cook and Tammie Werner would love to hear residents’ input on how they’d like to see the money used. Top suggestions have included flowers for Minkler Mansion, hanging baskets, an appreciation gift for Water Works manager Mark Kitchen, and new books for the town library.

Registration forms are now available at Lyman Town Hall at 8405 S. Main Street or by contacting Tammie at 360.826.3818, e-mail at, or via our fan page on Facebook at Lyman Annual Townwide Yard Sale.

Maps of all participants will be available to the public at the Lyman Town Hall, Patty Cook’s sale, and the Lyman Post Office. Participants are given the option of donating their leftover items at the end of the sale to benefit those in need in our area.
