2016 Neighbourhood Yard Sale Held on August 1st at the church was a big success with about 20 vendors displaying their wares.  We will do this again on August 7th 2017.  $5.00 will get you a spot to show your wares, but come at 8:30 to get set up before the shoppers come.

Liquidate your unwanted items and have extra cash. Trading Spots $5:00, with tables for the first ten.  Dogs & Drinks $2:00. The proceeds from these goes to charity.  Last year we sent it to a local school.
