Pig roast, flea market set for May 31

The Reynoldsburg-Truro Historical Society will offer residents a taste of summer with a Flea Market/Pig Roast from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 31, at the Historical Society Museum, 1485 Jackson St., across from Hannah Ashton Middle School.

Historical Society President Mark Myers said his organization also is the western anchor for the annual National Road Yard Sale.

"Since our event is one day only, we feature fresh goods, not picked over yet," Myers wrote in a press release. "We have a little something for everyone, with our flea market, pig roast, yard, book and bake sales, all combined into a one-day festival."

Myers said he and the other Historical Society members are volunteers who collect, preserve and display the history of Reynoldsburg.

He said the yard sale and flea market will feature the booths of 20 vendors, along with a "huge yard sale" on the blacktop behind the museum. Shoppers may also stop inside for a book and bake sale and tour the museum.

Pork will be ready to serve by about 10:30 a.m. that morning; sandwiches will cost $5.50 each.

A complete pork dinner will cost $7.50 and includes a pork sandwich, cole slaw, baked beans, chips and a drink. Ice cream and other snacks will also be available.

Food can be purchased for takeout or eaten at a shaded dining area nearby, Myers said.

"The event is a lot of fun and you are helping a good cause," he said.
