Coronavirus Update

As promised, we have continued to watch and listen to the CDC and our Governor Bill Lee, over the past couple of days. Information and guidance are changing at an astounding rate. In light of the newest suggested guidelines, we have decided to postpone the upcoming sale. 

 

Interim Guidance for Coronavirus (COVID-19) as of 3/15/2020:

CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events, recommends that the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.

We are true to our mission and will do everything possible to have an event this season. We do not take this measure lightly— we believe you should always seek wise counsel and pray before making choices in matters that involve so many. This decision is not made in fear. We are confident in our purpose; we are confident in our moms to make wise choices and we are strong in our mission to help our community. 

We will be meeting with the EXPO to work out future dates, while knowing it may require a change in venue. We ask that you join us in prayer as we seek the path God has for Duck-Duck-Goose. We fully believe God has His hands on this. We know our efforts as organizers and your efforts as moms are of value. We hope that you will join us in praying that God will show us exactly what steps to make.
 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6-7

We will keep you posted as details change. Our desire is to reschedule for a May or June sale. Your consignor number stays the same from season to season. So, this extra time at home could be a perfect time to tag your items. As for those concerned about your $5 pre-registration fee, we suggest that it be applied to our next event, but we are happy to offer a refund.

Thank you to those who are supportive of our mission. We have always considered Duck-Duck-Goose a community event that focuses on supporting families. We appreciate ALL emails, calls and responses. We are most thankful for those who are willing to stand with us to support and bring light to the families in our community.

We will be praying for the safety of you and your family at this time.
 

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”

Philippians 4:8-9

 

Stay strong!

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

    I won’t be able to attend or participate in the sale unless I can bring my mobility scooter, I can only stand about 5 minutes before my back and legs goes out and I fall to the floor. I have to have another spine surgery in April. Is it ok for me to bring my mobility scooter to the sale? I will reserve a $10 donation place in line and repeatedly put items in my reserve buggy.

    Thanks for all that you all do! We will consign with you all no matter where the sale is! You all are truly a blessing to our family and the community! Prayers as you all move forward this season!

  3. Ladies let PURGE our houses! Spring cleaning has begun in my house! Every sale for the last 10 years I leave items out of the sale because I run out of time…not this year! Lets make this the best Duck Duck these Great ladies have ever had! They will find a way and a venue for the sale to go on…and the crowd will be even bigger than ever because us Moms will be ready to get out of quarantine and shop!
