The West Point community will sponsor its annual fall yard sale rain or shine on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Shoppers from neighboring communities are welcome to visit the yard sale throughout the designated housing areas on the grounds of the U.S. Military Academy. Visitors are welcome, but only military residents are permitted to offer items for sale.

Anyone interested in taking part should enter through the academy's Thayer or Stony Lonesome gates. Proper identification is required upon entering academy grounds, and all vehicles are subject to search.

Visitors are reminded that all housing areas enforce a 15 mph speed limit.
