Lincoln Highway BUY-WAY Yard Sale
Save the dates!!  AUGUST 11, 12, & 13, 2016

buywayvmed(edited)Looking for a fundraising opportunity?  Since your residence, church or business is along the historic Lincoln Highway, join hundreds of others from West Virginia to Iowa who will be holding Lincoln Highway BUY-WAY Yard Sales on these dates. All sale receipts remain with the individual/group that holds the sale (unless you choose to make a tax-deductible donation to the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association), and you can choose the days/hours you wish.

  • Do you have some clutter that others will no doubt cherish? Set up your own table along the route!
  • Is your church, school, or organization looking for a unique fund-raising opportunity? Take advantage of the marketing, publicity, and customers that will be available.
  • Time to move some merchandise from your business or celebrate a “Sale”?  Acknowledge Abraham Lincoln and his Highway with a super sale on those dates—possible a “Sidewalk Sale!”
  • Like to drive and learn about our heritage, plus see some yard sales going on along the route? Get out and drive along the Lincoln Highway in Indiana for a day or two. Stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of the many great restaurants on the route and visit historic sites while you shop.

The event is piloted by the Ohio Lincoln Highway Historic Byway. More information and Ohio listings can be found at:  http://www.historicbyway.com/buy-way-yard-sale

Dear Indiana Lincoln Highway Association Members and Friends,

In 2016 we will participate in the state-wide celebration of Indiana’s Bicentennial! We know that this year-long event will bring tourists from near and far and we want to enable them to easily drive and explore the Lincoln Highway. In order to do that, we invite you to support one of more of the following projects:

  • Consistent signage of both alignments of Indiana’s Lincoln Highway. Sadly, signage is currently rather hit-and-miss, depending on the location. Our new Byway signs will allow tourists to follow the Route much more easily. Each sign plus directional arrow costs roughly $70, and we need 170 of them.
  • Indiana Byways Bicentennial Passport program. Each of the seven Indiana Byways has selected several sites at which travelers can check in and have their Byways Passport stamped. The goal is that families will be encouraged to explore the historic roads while collecting stamps. The INLHA needs $750 to fund the production of the passports and LH stamps for each of the 10 sites, as well as complementary literature describing the Route.
  • Completion of the Goshen Gazebo and Ostermann Memorial site in Dyer so they are ready for Bicentennial visitors in early 2016.
