After many years of having its annual garage sale every June, The Applewood Community on Route 5 in Clinton is canceling it this year. But, according to Director of Operations and Tenant Relations Barbara Barkett, it’s not cancelled forever.


Barkett says she is “disappointed to say the least,” in regard to the garage sale cancellation. She says the sale has been stopped because of insurance and legal reasons stemming from an incident that happened last year.

“It’s in our best interest and our residents’ best interests to reexamine the format of the sale,” Barkett said. “We are here to protect our residents.”

Although she said she was disappointed, Barkett did say that she was excited to see what they will do next with the garage sale once they go “back to the drawing board.”
