Every homeowner knows the feeling: You look around the house and realize other folks might find a better use for stuff you’re just not using anymore.

Staff at Columbia Gorge Community College recently completed a materials inventory and learned the college, too, needs to do a little spring cleaning. People are invited to see the results when the college hosts a Surplus Sale on Friday, March 29, from noon to 5 pm and Saturday, March 30, from 9 am to 5 pm in the Fort Dalles Readiness Center. The Readiness Center is located on The Dalles Campus at 402 East Scenic Drive.

Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, which has offices on the college campus, is also participating in the event. All items are priced to sell; sale of college items will benefit the college’s general fund, while the sale of surplus items from Oregon DEQ will benefit the college foundation’s general scholarship fund. Surplus items are posted on the college’s website, and include projectors, fire-proof safes, arc welders and welding hoods, a laser printer, desks, laptops, computers, office chairs, lecterns, shelving, bookcases … even a set of barn doors.
