Big Barn Sale at Browning Masonic Community

In conjunction with the City of Waterville’s Annual Community Garage Sale, Browning will host a Barn Sale sponsored by The Browning Masonic Community Resident Council. Items included for the sale are gently used furniture, lamps, appliances along with a White Elephant Sale featuring everything but the kitchen sink! There will be books, puzzles, toys, household goods, linens and other “treasures” but no clothing items! The sale will run Thursday, June 12th and Friday, June 13th both days from 8 am to 4 pm both days. All proceeds from the sale go to Resident Council who provide funds annually for such things as an “Annual Employee Appreciation Lunch”, service flags for the campus Veteran Memorial’s, donations to Pathways, and other community projects, to name a few. Also, adjoining the campus a local nursing home will offer free hot dogs and beverage to anyone who stops by.

Browning Masonic Community offers individuals an enhanced and nurturing lifestyle in a family atmosphere at its peaceful, scenic location along the Maumee River. Browning’s 450 acres in Waterville promote the serenity of country living while situated close to city conveniences.

One resident describes it best, “After I raised my family, my home began to feel very much like an empty nest. And it was too difficult for me to manage my home and household responsibilities. Coming to Browning was just like coming home again. There are people to share a laugh with and plenty to keep me busy. On top of that, somebody else besides me does the cooking and cleaning! It’s really wonderful.”

“After spending my life mowing lawns and shoveling snow, I wanted something better. I wanted the freedom to come and go and do what I want. I found it here at Browning Masonic Community. I enjoy the walking path. There are nice areas to sit and a gazebo where you can relax and enjoy the breeze.”
