Longtime Organizer Looks to Add Extra Hands in Garage Sale Planning
By Kyle Mianulli, SAPCC communications coordinator
Rich Nelson is always on the move. "I never slow down," he says. At 74 years old, there is seldom a hole in his schedule, but every year he puts aside one week to organize the St. Anthony Park Community Garage Sale in September-a veritable one man show of community building, and, of course, bargain-hunting.
He does estate and financial planning. He works as a business consultant. Currently, he is frequently on the road connecting people to Medicare and healthcare services and products. He's taught thirteen school subjects in 12 years at the high school and middle school levels. During his teaching career, he served as the choir director and coached three sports. "I've done a bunch of things...I'm starting out new adventures all the time," he says.
