Date: Saturday, May 16th, 2009

Time: 9am – 12pm

Place: Heartland Church of Christ
6120 NW Prairie View Road
Kansas City, MO 64151

Contact: Mindy Akright (preferred)

It's back by popular demand and it's coming up fast and furious! We
are having the sale in a different location due to renovations at
Midwestern Seminary. This year the sale will be held at Heartland
Church of Christ (where the monthly CPHE meetings are held).

While the facilities may prove to be larger, we face a different
challenge this year. There are a very limited amount of tables
available for use. The pricing is based upon members/non-members as
well those who use a provided table and those who bring their own or
just use floor space. A space of about 6' will be assigned to you
(please take that into consideration when you bring your tables).

The pricing is as follows:

Free for current CPHE members who bring their own table or use floor

$3 for current CPHE members who use a table provided (tables are
limited and will be assigned first contact first serve).

$5 for non-members who bring their own table or use floor space.

$8 for non-members who use a table provided (tables are limited and
will be assigned first contact first serve).

The tables provided are both round and the standard 6' length. For
those who would like a provided table, please indicate if you have a
preference. Remember, book shelves are a great way to display your
books as well.

Please use extra patience with me this year as I adjust to the new
challenges. It's only 3 weeks away. We have been able to put
together a good sale in 3 weeks time in the past so I anticipate this
will be a success as well. Spread the word and mark your items. I
look forward to seeing you then!!!
