Biggest Moving Give Away Ever! Belmont High’s Surplus Furniture Up For Grabs July 2

The biggest moving give away ever in town history will occur on Friday, July 2 as Belmont residents will have the opportunity to take away surplus furniture from Belmont High School on a first come/first serve basis on Friday, July 2 from 9 a.m. to noon.

The give away will allow former students to retrieve their old desks for their apartments, designers who long for 1990-era furnishings to grab some vintage items or bargain hunters to stock up on hidden treasures.

And be prepared to take and carry: Items must be removed from the building during the give away, there is no holding of furniture, and there are no resources available to move the furniture so everyone must come ready to take the furniture by their own means.

The access area will be limited to spaces on the first floor of the high school; all other areas will be secured from access as the building is not be open for tours. Preliminary work on demolishing the circa-1970 building will begin in July to make way for the middle school portion of the new school and new playing fields.

    Another kick to the taxpayers. Surplus! Keep blowing money TA and Selectboard. How many more plans have to be shot down before they wake up and realize townspeople do not trust the management of the town. Time for a recall on two selectman, then removal of TA. How many more costly mistakes can be hidden?

      Editor’s note: The furniture and other material that will be given away on July 2 has been determined to have little value and would cost more to remove than sell. Also, the Select Board and the Town Administrator have had no involvement with the decision to give away the material as it belongs to the School Department and can only be disposed of by a vote of the School Committee.

    Is this taking place on the first floor of the new high school or the original high school? The article mentioned the building would not be open for tours, so just wanted to make sure. Thanks.
