Has spring cleaning left you with some no longer needed treasures?
The Museums of Tusculum College may have the solution of what to do with those items - donate them to the Doak House Trail Sale. The museum is seeking donations of household items, decorative items, clothing, furniture and other gently used treasures. Unfortunately, the museum cannot accept any computer equipment.
The Doak House Trail Sale is an annual fundraiser for the Museums of Tusculum College. The sale will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 14, on the lawn of the Doak House Museum on the Erwin Highway.
Proceeds from the sale will go to support the museums’ educational programs. Operated by the Department of Museum Program and Studies, the Doak House Museum hosts thousands of school children from the region for a variety of educational programs related to the 19th century as well as other community programs. The President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library on campus features educational exhibits about the nation’s 17th president, the history of Tusculum College and special themed exhibits. Follow the museums on Facebook and Twitter to learn the latest news and upcoming events or visit its website at www.tusculum.edu/museums to learn more about the variety of programs offered at the museums.
Pick up of items is available for the local Greeneville area or donations may be dropped at the Doak House Museum or the President Andrew Johnson Museum on campus. The museum staff has too been saddened at the recent devastation caused by the tornados and storms in Greene County. The staff will also be happy to pick up donations of items needed in the relief effort and take them to the appropriate agencies while picking up items for the sale.
Please contact Leah Walker at the Doak House Museum for more information or to donate items.
