Effort made Rome shine

My dad and I want to thank Joe Ferlo and the Rome Main Street Alliance for all the work they did to organize the annual citywide garage sale.

We were amazed at the wonderful turnout, especially considering the weather. Not only did we sell, but I also had a great time shopping. It was fun meeting new people and sharing goodies and laughs.

We were impressed at how efficiently the day progressed; watching the very early maneuvering of large vehicles and trailers followed by the huge crowd of treasure seekers.

It was obvious to us that there had to be much time and energy expendcd in the planning and organization of this fun-filled event. Thank you again to all of the volunteers, and kudos to the Rome Main Street Alliance for again making Rome shine.
