Historical society wants you to de-clutter

New Year's resolutions sound great on Jan. 1, but as the month marches on we can often get distracted by other things. Getting more organized is always on the list of to-do's for the new year. Less clutter is what we all need in 2014, unless you are the Westlake Historical Society!

As you are doing some of that new year cleaning, do you have a spare room to de-clutter? Why not remember the historical society. What a great way to rid the clutter and help out the historical society at the same time.

The Westlake Historical Society has begun collecting items for its annual spring yard sale. Many items are welcome including household, accessories and clothing.

Proceeds from the sale go toward utility costs and preservation costs at the Clague House Museum. You might see stuff that has been taking up space too long. Our members see these items as a way to purchase preservation materials, provide free programming for the community as well as a way to cover utility costs at the museum.

The historical society is a 501(c)(3) organization and tax forms for your donation are available. We can always use help sorting the items as well.

Please contact the society by visiting www.westlakeohiohistory.org or call 440-808-1961.
