Polo Community Garage Sale Scheduled

Polo Annual Spring Garage Sale – April 25th and 26th

This year’s annual Polo Garage Sale will be held April 25th and 26th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We had over 75 homes participate last spring and we would like to have even more this year. The fee will be $5.00 which pays for online and newspaper advertising, signage, and Polo maps for buyers. In order to participate, please follow the instructions below. We had homes that made between $200 and $1000 last spring and were able to recycle items they no longer used. In addition, this is a great time to get your closets and basements cleaned out before the summer!

1. Make a $5 check payable to Polo HOA (NOT Sandy Carter). Checks will not be cashed until after April 26th.

2. Mail check to Sandy Carter 6860 Woodspring Way Cumming , GA 30040 .

3. Fill out a piece of paper with your home address, top 5-10 items for sale, and a phone number/e-mail address. Remember that you want to attract buyers, so get specific on your items for sale! Examples: Girls clothing sizes 2T-5T; Antique oak bedroom furniture; Gym equipment – treadmill, weights, and stationary bike; Sports gear – bats, balls, helmets, and gloves. Phone numbers/e-mails contact information is in case further follow-up is needed and will not be distributed.

4. Indicate if willing to volunteer. Please let me know if you can help place directional around the Cumming/Alpharetta area on Thursday and retrieve them on Sunday. Your help is greatly appreciated!

5. Deadline is April 14th!

We will also offer some great charity and garbage pick up services for Polo Home Owners! Stay tuned for more details!

Feel free to place balloons or other decorative items to alert buyers to your sale (due to the large number of participants, Polo cannot do this). For those not participating in the sale, we ask you to not park on the street for these two days. For additional questions, the preferred method of contact is via e-mail at scartml(at)

Charity Pick Up

We are very excited to be working with Cumming Home Ministries this year for the charity pick up.

Jan Koolhaas is the contact and she can be reached at 678-333-4217. Please call her in advance of the sale and they will come to your house Saturday, April 26th after the sale.

I met with Jan this week and it is a wonderful organization. CHM ministries focuses on helping local Forsyth County men in need with various resources such as housing, food, support, etc. They also have a thrift store located on Highway 20 with wonderful items. Please help in supporting this local non profit organization. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact Jan. They have the need for weekly volunteers to work a 4 hour shift in the thrift store.

Bulk trash pick up for Advanced Disposal Customers is scheduled for Tuesday, April 29th. Please leave items at the curb by 7am!
