Olyphant church throws massive sale
by Christopher Cornell ADVANTAGE EDITOR
Attention, bargain hunters: This is a big one. SS. Cyril and Methodius Ukrainian Catholic Church in Olyphant will hold its fifth annual rummage sale Friday through Sunday, Sept. 1820, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the parish hall, 207 River St. in Olyphant. “It started as fundraiser for the 125th anniversary of the church back in 2010,” recalls Lauren Telep, one of the organizers. Since then, it grown every year and has become a huge undertaking. The things you need to know: 1. The location change. “We held the first rummage sale at the American Legion on Willow Street in Olyphant. It was held there for four years, but due to conflict of dates, we are now having it at the parish hall on River Street.” 2. What can you get? “We are carry furniture, antique and current pieces, lamps of all kinds, toys, Christmas items, Halloween items, Easter items, bedding, glassware — vintage and current, small kitchen appliances, picture frames, vinyl records, religious items, Ukrainian items, tools, books ... even two pianos,” Telep said. “Last year we priced more than 10,000 items. Furniture is our biggest seller, and we are priced to sell. Nothing is carried over from the previous years. We get our donations from parishioners, other church rummage sales, local yard and garage sales. plus family and friends and neighbors donate to St. Cyril’s.” Additionally, this year’s items include childrens’ school desks (50 of them) and 35 childrens’ school chairs, as well as adult desks, book cases, and other items left over from the closing of the Geneva School back in 2012. 3. What can you expect? “When shoppers come to the event,” Telep
said, “they are often surprised how every thing is so organized. It comes from my retail background, working in New York City as a buyer for more than 20 years.” “For example: the Christmas table is organized by items: Christmas mangers, ceramics, dishes, plush items, candles, lights, etc. We are organized by holidays: Christmas, Easter, Halloween/Fall, Valentines Day and St. Patty’s Day. Throughout the hall we continue each category: we have vintage glassware, dishes, potpourri of single vintage items, a table of ‘new items’, candles and candle holders, items made of wood, a craft From left: Lauren Telep, Dorothy Zinsky, Marie Martin, Chertable, a picture frame table, yl Matuszewski and Rev.

In case you didn’t buy your souvenir on vacation, you can as if it was a store, organized by category. Then within each category, items are placed together buy it here.” Telep has also set up an “express check out for a better presentation. It takes a lot of time and help.” table” — 10 items or less for a fast checkout. It is help she is grateful for. “We even have ‘hold area’ where customers “I am forever thankful for all the help and volwho have chosen so many items, and need to set them down while they continue to shop, can unteers that work to make our rummage sale sucplace them.” There will also be a basket raffle, cessful,” Telep said. “There are always a handful of with more then 50 individual baskets donated by dedicated volunteers that put in endless hours for parishioners, local business, retail stores and res- more than three weeks and it could not be done without their dedication, Rev.

When you witness a crushing tackle during a game of Monday Night Football you probably wonder how these guys can continue to go out and play again the following week. One way players in the NFL keep on their feet is through Chiropractic. Chiropractors focus on treating injuries of the muscles and bones. With back pain causing trouble for as many as 50% of professional athletes every year, many NFL players are turning to Chiropractic care for their aches and pains. A questionnaire was sent to the head athletic trainers of every team in the league. The results indicate a strong use of Chiropractic: 45% of the NFL trainers had personally seen a Chiropractor; 77% of trainers had referred players to a Chiropractor; and 31% of NFL teams had an official Chiropractor on their staff. With professional sports organizations beginning to embrace Chiropractic, I can see why more of the general public is also seeking out this natural, safe alternative to drugs and surgery.

The Chamber Gallery, located in the historic Greater Carbondale Chamber of Commerce Building, 27 N. Main St., will present the exhibition entitled, “It’s Never Too Late!” with the opening reception to be held Friday, Sept. 18, 6-8 p.m., featuring refreshments and libations and music provided by singer Patrick Fling. The work of three area artists is featured in this show. Gallery director Ruthanne Jones describes the exhibit as a representational gathering of each artist’s work from the past and more recent work, “a lovely tribute to the life-long Hummingbirds by Robert Devroe happiness.” The featured artist is oil painter Pamela Hoyt, who lives in Scott Township. “I live on my mother’s 13 acres of land and find inspiration in nature’s paradise,” she said. Robert Devroe is a self-taught artist and came to art later in life, after drawing a rose four years ago for his daughter’s wedding invitation. With the encouragement of his wife Jackie, he began to take art seriously, designing note cards and began RFD Productions. Moving to Carbondale a year and a half ago, he is currently preparing for a solo exhibition to be held in 2016 at The Chamber Gallery. Marina Zazzerra Whitington, owner and proprietor of the Ben-Mar Restaurant, was interested in art from the time she was 9 years old. Her work in this exhibit was done in 1975-76 when she was living in Phoenix, The exhibition, “It’s Never Too Late,” at The Chamber Gallery will run through Friday, Oct. 16.
