BAYWOOD YARD SALE THIS SATURDAY, JULY 17TH, 9AM-2PM:
SIGN UP AS A SELLER OR BROWSE FOR HIDDEN TREASURE!
It's almost here! The return of our neighborhood favorite, the Baywood Yard Sale, this Saturday, July 17th, 9am-2pm! What better way to celebrate the start of summer and a return to "normal" than by giving your home a "late spring cleaning" and being a seller or buyer at the best yard sale around?
You still can sign up as a Yard Sale seller, but you have to act now! You can sell items from your front yard or go in with Baywood neighbors at one of their homes.
Add your name to the growing list of sellers by sending an email to email@example.com. Please include your name, address, telephone number, email, the summary list of items you want to sell and what you want to do with your proceeds.
You can keep what you earn, or donate the proceeds to a charity of your choice, or to our program partners, the San Mateo Police Activities League and Samaritan House.
Your Baywood Owners Improvement Association (BOIA) Board is creating a map of all participating sellers in Baywood to hand out and promote on social media. If you want to be a seller, we want to ensure your street is listed (no personal data on map). If you want to be a buyer, you'll want to pick up a copy of our map at the Yard Sale banner on the corner of 3rd and Parrott the morning of the Sale, or at any of the homes of the sellers.
It's super easy and fun to participate. Just let us know you want to participate and check back at our website for details and "tips for success." We are happy to answer any questions. Please share this email with your Baywood friends and neighbors and encourage them to sign up as well.
Many thanks! We look forward to seeing you, your friends and Baywood neighbors this Saturday, July 17th for a fun, safe and successful Baywood Yard Sale to celebrate our wonderful neighborhood!
WELCOME BAYWOOD KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL: SIGN UP TO HOST A STORYWALK SIGN ON YOUR FRONT YARD!
After a difficult year of remote learning, everyone wants to make our kids' return to in-person school this fall as enjoyable as possible. So our San Mateo Public Library wants to partner with Baywood in late August to host a STORYWALK (c) for families, children and all readers. STORYWALK (c) is a fun and simple program that has been run by libraries across the country. Residents along a street(s) in a neighborhood put up signs in their front yard with a page from a well-loved children's story. As you walk from house to house, you get to read the entire story. A map is provided so you know where all the STORYWALK(c) signs are.
This is of particular fun to young children, but any lover of books can join in and STORYWALK (c) is guaranteed to put a smile on your face! We've also all done a lot more neighborhood walking during COVID...let's keep that habit going in a new and enjoyable way!
We need at least 15 homes to conduct a STORYWALK (c). So far, 7 Baywood homes have signed up (thank you!). Can you please sign up to participate and put a smile on the face of Baywood students? All you have to do is put a sign in your front yard. The Library and BOIA take care of the rest.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part in a Baywood STORYWALK (c) this August. This is another great way to bring our community together. We really hope you will raise your hand for STORYWALK(c) today...thank you!
