Woman’s Literary Union Garage Sale Held July 23

AUBURN, ME (July 12, 2022) — Want to find a treasure? Have extra items to donate? The Woman’s Literary Union Garage Sale is for you! The WLU Garage Sale will be held on Saturday, July 23rd from 9am to 1pm at the Foss Mansion, 19 Elm Street, Auburn.

Sales and donations help restore the Foss Mansion. Built in 1914-1917, the Horatio Foss Mansion is a mix of Georgian revival and Spanish influence. The mansion was bequeathed to the WLU by Ella Foss in 1941. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and now available for rentals.

The WLU of Androscoggin County was organized in 1892. Early WLU projects included raising money for local playgrounds and parks, and promoting early childhood education and Kindergarten in the local school system. Today, the WLU holds events throughout the year to raise funds for scholarships and to support the Foss Mansion. One very popular event is the Prom Gown Giveaway. During prom season, the WLU makes girls’ dreams come true with free formal dresses, gowns and accessories.

The Woman’s Literary Union of Androscoggin County is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization. For more information check or call Kathy Lawrence at 795-6134 or email at
