A HUGE success

Posted by on Jul 17, 2017 in FAMILY | 0 comments

We had a VERY VERY successful yard sale on Saturday.

A HUGE thanks to all involved.
Unknown
The success was the work of many people who donated items to sell. Lots of yogis and friends, neighbours and family.
As well as my good friend Colleen and nephew Nick who worked tirelessly from beginning to end. Sheila came twice. Dropped off in the morning, cleared up and took away in the afternoon!
It was a long but worthwhile day.
We earned $800+.
That will help with house repairs, gardens and Term 3 school fees.

And there will certainly be more yard sales ahead.
Please keep us in mind!
