Village Community Association Garage Sale
held May 25

garage saleIt started off rainy – but had a big finish!  There were lots or cars cruising around The Village looking for bargains. 
Members of the VCA Social Committee provided maps to visitors with all the sale locations marked and arranged lots of advertising on-line and in the local papers.  That worked so well, we had visitors from as far away as Grimsby! 

Thanks to everyone who made the Garage Sale a success.
