What is the Bag 'n Tag? Each year, the Matlacha Hookers host the Bag 'n Tag Yard Sale to raise monies for its "Hooked on Education" Scholarship program. It will be held at the Moose Lodge on Stringfellow Road March 15.
Shoppers can purchase a brown paper grocery bag for $5 and fill it with as many clothing items that they can fit in the bag. In the past, shoppers have garnered anywhere from $30 to $125 worth of items for their $5 investment.
Hooker Hagglers will be on hand to assist shoppers interested in other items. The yard sale will run from 8 a.m. to noon.
In addition, that morning the Hookers will also host a pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m. at the Pine Island Moose Lodge on Stringfellow Road.
Islanders are asked to clean out their closets, drawers, attic and garages and donate items of gently worn clothing, household items, appliances, tools and furniture to the Hookers for this event.
Donation items can be dropped off at Trader's Hitching Post in Matlacha or Century 21 on Stringfellow during normal working hours. Donated items must be dropped off by March 8. Larger items can be dropped off on the day of the event before 8 a.m.
