Dollar$ and Cents-Tennial Community Yard Sale
The Hermon neighborhood of Los Angeles is having a community-wide yard sale fundraiser on Saturday, January 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for their 2012 Centennial celebration of joining the City. The large sale will be held at the empty lots behind the white picket fence two doors south of the Hermon Community Church, at 5710 Monterey Road (closest cross-street is Wheeling Way). There will be no sales before 9 a.m.
Everyone wanting to donate their soon-to-be rediscovered treasures should bring their cleaned, un-priced items between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. on the day of the sale (January 21), to the empty lot. Volunteers will unload and display your goodies. So whether you’re looking to clean out your garage, spare bedroom, office, or storage locker, or you’re hunting bargains – mark your calendar because this will be your event!
In 1903, a small group of Free Methodist settlers established an independent township bordered by South Pasadena and the Arroyo Seco. They named it “Hermon” after Mount Hermon in the Golan Heights near the border of Syria and Israel. It’s mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible, the northern boundary of the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 3:8) given to the Israelites after their Exodus from Egypt. “See, I have placed the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to give to your fathers . . .” (Deuteronomy 1:8 a,b). In 1912, Hermon was annexed to the City of Los Angeles at about the same time as Mount Washington and Cypress Park.
