MEDINA – Medina Lions have made the decision to go ahead this year with their community yard sale, flea market and chicken barbecue.

The event, which had to be canceled last year due to Covid, will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 5.

The day features numerous yard sales throughout the Medina community, and a flea market and chicken barbecue at the Olde Pickle Factory at 711 Park Avenue.

The format has been changed to observe Orleans County Health Department guidelines for Covid. Vendor spaces will be appropriately spaced further apart. Any potential vendor may still reserve a 20’ x 30’ space for $10 by contacting organizer Sherry Wheatley at (585) 735-5135.

Residents wishing to advertise their yard sale in a special brochure must call the Lake Country Pennysaver to purchase an ad. The sales will be printed on a map, which Lions’ members will start handing out on the four corners downtown at 8 a.m.

Chicken barbecue tickets may be purchased for $12 from any Lions member or by following the instructions on their website and clicking on the chicken barbecue link. They may also be ordered by called Jim Hancock at (585) 590-1248 or Tim Moriarty at (716) 417-0079. Dinners will be available from 11 a.m. until sold out. Those not picked up by 1 p.m. will be resold.

Proceeds from Lions’ events help them support many community endeavors, such as Powder Puff baseball, food kitchens, YMCA, eyeglasses for the needy and many other charities in Orleans County.
