The 2016 Golden Triangle Garage Sale was a Huge Success !!

Here is a slide show of some of the highlights of the day.

The weather was absolutely perfect for the garage sale day ! Couldn't have ordered anything better. Things went smoothly and everyone seemed to have had a great day. Congratulations to everyone who donated to the Salvation Army! We collected 3 tonnes of donations.

Yasmin and her wonderful bake sale raised $775.30 for WellSpring ! That is absolutely fantastic! Amazing that she was able to do all that baking when she just became a new grandmother on Thursday.

Many thanks to...

Vanessa Barker and Taggart Lee for helping from 7am to 5pm. They worked very hard on the sale and helped to make sure things ran smoothly.

Janet Murray for providing lunch and snacks,

Joe Bortolussi for picking up all the signs and banners after the sale. That is a big job and Joe has done that for years.

John and Sheila Brazys for helping to unload cars with donations to go into The Salvation Army truck.

The Salvation Army for being part of our special day.

My husband, Peter Carr, for being working hard all day as well as the days leading up to the sale and for being such a wonderful support.

Another successful garage sale!

Three Days and Counting !!!

The Weather Person says...

Mainly sunny and 27 degrees on Saturday !! Yippee !! If the weather co-operates, we know that it will be a successful garage sale !

The interest in the sale this year is fantastic ! Both from sellers and shoppers. There have been a larger number of requests for garage sale packages and lawn signs this year. Please get the word out from now until Saturday on your social media.

Yasmin on Pepler has just confirmed that she will be having her annual bake sale again. That lady really knows her stuff when it comes to baking. All the proceeds from her sale go to WellSpring.

Thanks Yasmin !!!

Please remember that The Salvation Army truck will be on Pepler to collect everyone's leftovers. It is the largest single day donation drive that they have in Ontario. Way to go Golden Triangle residents !!
