Hitting up more than 15 garage sales on a typical Saturday would likely take hours of time and litres of gas that the average Westside resident can’t afford to waste.
But on Saturday, May 26, the Westbank Lions Club will make it a lot easier when it hosts its first ever monster garage sale.
According to Rick Hepner, a member of the Lions club and one of the organizers of the garage sale, the purpose of the event is to get rid of some old kitchen supplies.
“When the Lions Manor was torn down, we acquired a bunch of the kitchen stuff for the Lions Hall. We replaced some of the older stuff in the hall with some of the stuff from the manor—now we’re having a sale to get rid of (the older kitchen supplies),” said Hepner.
The garage sale event will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and there will be burgers and drinks supplied by the Westbank Lions Club.
Those who are willing to sell their own items can rent a booth for $20.
Hepner said the community response has been positive and so far with approximately 15 people signed up to sell their used goods.
