The Annual Tabernacle Baptist Church Parking Lot Sale in the Ridgecrest Neighborhood on Saturday, June 10, 2023 had a very drizzly start to their day. Some people had canopies and others were using large sheets of plastic to keep their ware dray.

She reports that "It drizzled and misted until almost noon. And while it was wet and folks tried keeping their wares dry by every means possible - it was a success. 

"Shoppers were few the first hour or so, but as the morning wore on the turn out improved. By noon there were lots of them! 

The skies cleared, the plastic came off, and the shoppers came to buy.

"Everyone I saw made a least one purchase. Some bought enough that they had to bring in a vehicle to pick up their merchandise. Sellers seemed happy - I was pleased to see how well they did by the end of the day.

"The Pastor of the Church, Tom Ruhlman, allowed them to stay for as long as they wanted to. The last were packed up by 3:30pm.

"Church volunteers barbecued and gave away hot dogs throughout the entire day."
