Town Wide Yard Sale/Bike Sale April 26 (rain or shine)

Busiest yard sale day of the season! Get your yard sale map the day of the event for $3 at the Community Center, starting at 7 a.m. Yard sales will run from 7 a.m. or later to posted times.

This annual fundraising event is sponsored by the Friends of Pepperell Recreation. For info, call 978-835-0133 or email info@friendsofpepperell.org.

The Friends of Pepperell will also be holding its 8th Annual Used Bike Sale, Saturday, April 26, from 9 a.m. to noon, on the Town Field basketball courts and/or inside the Community Center.

Each year, residents have been amazingly wonderful in donating their gently used bikes, trikes, scooters and ride-ons. On average we start our sale with about 250 bikes.

Bikes still welcome. Bring on the day of the sale, starting at 7 a.m.

All unsold bikes at end of sale are donated to Worcester Earn-A-Bike. Our pay it forward objective keeps the bikes local and ensures area families can purchase a gently used bike for their kids and grandkids at affordable prices. The Earn-A-Bike program benefits many and keeps these bikes out of the landfills!

Over 1,200 bikes have been "recycled!"

And, we are able to do great things for Pepperell!
