Looking For Some Post-surgery Medical Equipment
A friend in the area is having knee replacement surgery next week. She'd hoped to borrow an adult commode/raised toilet seat unit from the Franklin County Triad organization at the Franklin County jail. But they're closed due to Covid concerns which is unfortunate given how many people borrow equipment from their collection.

I thought of asking here if anyone has anything like this to sell. A shower transfer chair would also be helpful. Thank you.

Looking For Hay Field
I am writing as a member of a dog club seeking a hay field/pasture in which we could hold a dog trial. The field needs to be at least 6 clear acres, with grass no more than 4 inches tall. I'd love to find a field we could use in late June, after the first cutting if the land is an active hay field. The dates are flexible at this point. The club carries a million dollar liability insurance policy. Participants are required to take home all animal waste. We are able to pay $500 for the weekend of use.

If you own or lease a field that might be appropriate please contact me at

Thank you.

Iso Looking For Plastic/glass Apples Fruit
I am looking for any plastic, glass or any kind of fake fruit, specifically apples - you know... the old plastic ones grandma had on her kitchen table in a bowl!

My local Historical Society is trying to collect as many as we can for a permanent display so I thought I'd throw it out on here to see if you have any in your attic collecting dust and would like to donate them to our Historical Society.

Or should you see them in the FREE Piles at any of the upcoming garage/tag sales along side the road, please pick them up for us!

Thank you in advance.

Lkg For Resort/timeshare Advice
You might want to look at a site called (I think that's the name) that lists timeshares for sale and for rent. It might at least give you an idea of what's for sale and what people are asking. Good luck; I suspect there are lots of timeshares on the market, and that the competition is rough. If so, your son might want to list it as a rental and possibly recoup some of his payments.

Wanted: Help With Mailing Labels Dymo Label Maker

Does anyone currently use a Dymo Label Maker for making mailing labels? Someone has asked me to assist with a 300+ mailing, said that the names and addresses are currently in a data base and now need to make the mailing labels. I wasn't sure if there was a way to connect the two and have them print. Another person said we would have to enter each label separately. Please call me if you can offer some help. Thanks.

Lkg For Resort/timeshare Advice

My son was talked into buying a timeshare about a year / year and a half ago in Florida. It's a beautiful resort, but the sale was for a one week stay every other year. Between the payment ea month and maintenance fee he's at a point where he is not interested in it anymore and looking for a way to sell it or get out of the deal. Does anyone have suggestions on what to do. He still owes money on it so I'm not sure how a sale would work. Do real estate agencies help with this sort of thing?

Thanks for your assistance. Lorie

Scarf Donations For Those Need
A consignment shop in my town started collecting scarves for those in need. Right after Christmas for the last few years, they gather up the donations and "Scarf Bomb" the town of Athol. The scarves are tied to the lamp-posts, benches and street signs, for those in need to claim. Last year 100 were donated and all were claimed. Please help us keep families in need warm this winter.

Please look in your winter storage, or if you would like to purchase and donate a new scarf, it will be gratefully accepted. All donations (unless new with tags) are requested to be freshly laundered and placed in a plastic bag. Each scarf does not have to be individually bagged, you can bag multiples together.

I have agreed to reach out to our campus community for donations and am volunteering my personal time to trasnport them and assist in tying the donated scarves up to be claimed.

If you are interested in donating, I can arrange pickup from any UMass mail room over the next five weeks. I would like to receive all donations no later than Jan 5, 2017 for distribution later that weekend. Any donations made on the UMass campus should be placed in a tied-off walmart or big-y type plastic bag, with a note reading "Project Scarf - ATTN Mail Services" stapled to the bag. If you are part of the 5 college community and would like to donate, please contact me to make arrangements to get the donations to me.

I am hoping with help from the campus community we can double the number of scarves for this year!

Thanks in advance for helping families in need keep warm this winter...
