On Nov. 17, the Aiken Council of Neighborhoods held an indoor yard/craft sale at the City of Aiken Municipal Building’s Conference Center to raise funds necessary to apply for and gain 501(c)(3) non-profit organization status. We met and exceeded our goal of $500.

To the numerous people who donated items to the Council of Neighborhoods, the people who helped setup for the event, the sellers who rented tables and space for their goods, and those who came to look and buy we extend deep, heartfelt thanks. Without your support, this event would not have been the success it was.

The Aiken Council of Neighborhoods is committed to working with the City of Aiken in its Safer Communities Initiative and to assisting individual and collective neighborhood associations throughout the city by sharing ideas and experiences, supporting each other’s activities, assisting in forming new associations and providing education to council and neighborhood association members.

Again, our thanks to all involved in this successful venture for the Aiken Council of Neighborhoods.

Gary Yount, president
