Moving Out of the Warehouse We need to move our things out of the warehouse by December 31. This Friday or Saturday, we will sort through what we have and separate what we plan to keep and what we will sell or give away. Hopefully, we will move things to our new storage next week. We will need trailers to move some of the items. I will send an email as soon as I know when it is available. Please contact nancy.ranck@riveroaksva.org to let us know what days and times you are available to help.
