Bargain hunters! Brescia University and Kentucky Wesleyan College are teaming up for a huge rummage sale coming to Owensboro in September.  The event will be staged on the front lawn of KWC and will help raise money for students at both schools who want the opportunity to study abroad.

In May of 2023, students from Brescia and Kentucky Wesleyan will be making the trek to Australia and New Zealand.  That trip is open to students and anyone from the community that's interested in going.

In 2024, they're heading off to Asia to visit Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. Then, in 2025, the plan is to visit various countries in Europe, including Germany.  Reserving space on the Australia or Asia trip is incredibly easy.  The deposit is just $50 to sign up and there are automatic and manual payment plans that allow you to determine how much money you can pay monthly.  Balances must be paid in full 60 days before departure.

To help offset some of the travel costs for students, the schools are teaming up for a huge yard sale that will also feature booths from local artisans and some local coffee shops and bakeries. Each will donate portions of their proceeds to the study abroad fund.

The schools are currently seeking donations for the yard sale. If you have something you'd like to donate, you can reach out to Christina Starkey, Associate Professor of Mathematics at KWC (christina.starkey@kwc.edu) or Molly Gross, who's an Assistant Professor of Humanities (molly.gross@kwc.edu).

The schools are accepting furniture, clothing, kids toys, and more. Donations have been pouring in from faculty, staff and students.

The sale will take place Saturday, September 25th from 11am to 3pm on the front lawn of Kentucky Wesleyan College.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.

Keep scrolling for 50 vintage photos that show the beauty of America's national parks.
