Garage Sale – Part 2

Categories: Events

The second garage sale which was held on Saturday, July 9th was another success. The garage sale committee met on June 29 after the first garage sale to decide what to do with the articles left over from the first sale. They decided to hold another sale on July 9. With speed and efficiency they planned and organised this sale. The response was better than expected. The sale was scheduled to begin at 9:00 am. and end at 2:00 pm. People were already circling the area by 8:00 am as we were preparing to set up the items for sale. The sale ended at approximately 12:30 pm, after much of the items were already sold. The amount raised from the sale was $665.00. When the amount raised from the raffle of the quilt was added the total came up to $895.00. This brings the grand total for the two garage sales to $4,045.00.

The Garage Sale Committee would like to thank all the volunteers who came out to put out signs, set up and sell items, provide snacks, and the Smith family for loaning their tent for the sale.
