Is the heat keeping you indoors? Do you have extra time because you’re not chasing stink bugs around the house? Take some of that time to gather up items for the Rappahannock County Democratic Committee’s “Dog Days of August” indoor yard sale Aug. 31-Sept. 1 at the Washington fire hall. Accepted donations include furniture in good condition, working appliances, tools, jewelry, books, toys, glassware and kitchenware, silver and plated silver, musical instruments and other saleable items in good repair (no exercise equipment or car parts). Donations can be dropped off at the firehouse Aug. 29-30; pickup for large items can be arranged. If you have questions, want to know about donating or need to schedule a pickup, contact Ross O’Donoghue at 540-987-8019.
