First Annual College Hill Garage Sales

First Annual College Hill Garage Sales

April 30th, 2022 9am-3pm

The College Hill Partnership is excited to bring you the first annual College Hill Neighborhood Garage Sales on April 30th, 2022, from 9:00am to 3:00pm. 

Your rags might be someone else’s riches! So gather your old things and get them ready for the College Hill Garage Sales. 

Live in the College Hill neighborhood? Complete this form by April 24th to have your sale listed on the garage sale map. This is a great (and free) way to advertise and bring shoppers to your sale. In the event of rain, each individual sale will determine whether or not to cancel. 

Don’t live in the neighborhood or don’t want to host your own sale? Donate to the College Hill Partnership’s garage sale! The CHP will be hosting our own sale in Seerley Park. All proceeds will go directly to the College Hill Partnership Seerley Park Fund. 

If you have items you would like to donate, please drop them off at the Partnership office at 2304 College Street. Donations will be accepted on April 15th, and 16th from 9:00am to 1:00pm, and April 22nd and 23rd from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Please no large furniture or appliances. 

We have several volunteer opportunities both before and on the day of the sale. If you’re interested in volunteering, please email us at 

Watch out for more information on Facebook and Instagram!

This year the College Hill Partnership is working to be more efficient.  You could say it’s the CHP’s New Year’s Resolution.  With that in mind, the Board passed a resolution at our October Board Meeting to ensure the membership application process is streamlined & open for a longer period of time to encourage increased participation in the College Hill Partnership.

Benefits to CHP Membership:

  • Vote for board members and any changes made to bylaws in the upcoming election
  • Free food at the annual meeting
  • All formal communication includes: updates, minutes, agendas, meeting reminders
  • Opportunity to participate in the College Hill Neighborhood, and projects that better our community
  • And the satisfaction you are making the Hill a better place


To obtain all the privileges above you must:

  • Request an application via email and mail or email completed application to:

PO Box 974

Cedar Falls, Iowa 50613


complete an application online HERE prior to March 1, 2019


  • Submit dues by mail or online (amount of $25) prior to March 1, 2019

A resolution passed allowed two possible ways to have membership dues waived.  Each person who qualifies for the waiver program has been notified by email.  Didn’t receive an email notifying you of your qualification for a waiver and you believe you qualify for one please submit a request for waiver via email to

Waiver Opportunities:

  • During CHP’s calendar year (May 2018 to March 2019) you have volunteered for CHP events, or committees totaling over five hours. College Hill Partnership Monthly and Annual Board meetings do not qualify towards these hours.
  • You own property in the College Hill Overlay SSMID district and pay taxes into the SSMID fund helps support the CHP.


If you qualify for the wavier opportunities you will receive one membership which is non-transferable.  An application must be submitted by the deadline (March 1, 2019) for you to obtain all privileges listed above.  A record of volunteer hours (dates, times, description) must be provided with the application if requesting a waiver.


We encourage you to share this blog with members of the community who might like to be a part of our wonderful organization.  If there are any questions about the application process please reach out to Kathryn Sogard either by phone (319)-830-6338 or email
