This fall’s garage sale had many benefits; more than what meets the eye. It was fun for both the buyers and sellers – we got to visit with our neighbours! It helped us economically and also environmentally - while it benefited both buyers and seller.
Despite competing with Halloween and the weather, the men and women of this congregation worked diligently with setting up, hauling, sorting, unpacking, and pricing a variety of items! Workers made sales, cashiers and wrappers processed them and others tallied it at day’s end and then delivered the night deposits to the bank. We had kitchen workers that fed, watered and socialized this whole crew and then in their spare time cleaned up all the dusty articles that were to be sold. After the final closing it became a bee hive again with repacking all unsold items, loading them up into the trucks and having them delivered to the other charitable organizations. We thank each and every one of you that took part with your time and donations!
We are once again pleased to announce that we netted $8,346.02, which will go directly to the Building Fund! Book sales included.
Special thanks to our committee consisting of Carol Bugiak (Lead), Marilyn Young, Shirley Aston, Caren Blatchford, Hazel Feist, Diane Mabbott, Donna Arie, Gladys Jack and Joan Ellis.
