In a special meeting of Rector Community Museum’s board of directors recently, the board voted unanimously to proceed with the sale of liquidated gift items from Rector Downtown Drug’s Gift Shop.

Keith Hill and Shannon Haywood closed the gift shop, adjacent to the drugstore, when Jan Hill decided to use her energies in other areas. Many lovely items have been donated to Rector Community Museum to use as a fund raiser for the museum’s projects in upgrading the Underwood building and repairing the roof to better house and display the museum’s large collections.

Present at the meeting were president Johnny Williams, secretary Cathy Louder, treasurer Don Gibbs, Glenna Bookout, Joey Pruett, Marvin Gatewood and Bill Rabjohn. The sale will take place at the Underwood building on Main Street in Rector from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, July 10, 11 and 13 with Thursday being dubbed “surprise night.”

Prices have been slashed by 70 percent, with the customer paying 30 percent of the marked price, rounding to the nearest dollar. “Bring your own bags, boxes, and packing materials so you can take home these treasures,” Williams said. “We have an abundance of lovely gift items at rock-bottom prices. We are grateful to Keith and Shannon for their donation. This sale will be wonderful for the museum and a treasure trove for bargain hunters.”
