Another project is the flea market sale. The ETRC flea market is held at the Oak Ridge High School in the Turnpike side parking lot. The sales are held by the high school weekly on Saturdays from March to the end of October and for a small fee space is provided for anyone who has items for sale. ETRC participates as a means of raising money for barn projects. This year possible projects range from purchasing additional sand for the arena or buying a "carport" style cover for the tractors and lawnmower. For the sale, members donate things that they no longer need or want to ETRC. At the April 2nd sale there were Christmas items, household items, lawnmovers, games, both board and video, and much, much more. The workers arrived before daylight at 6:00 AM to set up. They came with a flatbed trailer and smaller trailer loaded with boxes and boxes of items plus items not in boxes. It took almost 2 hours to get ready for customers but were ready when the first customers came. It was a busy day and items sold pretty steadily. When the day end, the majority of things had been sold and those who had worked the sale felt good about the results. The next sale for ETRC will take place June 11. This sale will be to raise monies to help defer the cost of those 4Hers who are going to the week long 4H Horse State Competition in Shelbyville, TN. Many of the items for that sale will be donated by 4H parents but ETRC members will help out too.
