A note from Crystal who was the chief organizer for the garage sale this year:
Had a couple busy days, but wanted to get back to everyone with details about the yard sale. First of all it was a group effort, as most successful projects are. Sincere thanks go to Sandy & her husband Dale for not only allowing us to use the garage, but for helping throughout the week.
Sandy worked Mon.through Thurs., Claudia & Ellen did tons of pricing at their house, worked for set up, take down on Sun.(along with Claudia's other daughter ) & also at the sale on Thurs. Then Ellen brought the remaining books to Half Price Books & received another $32 dollars. Way to go Ellen!
Lynn worked on getting tons of items, and kept us going late into the night at set up Tues.,then came back and worked most of Wed. Mary Ann & Idelle worked at the sale on Fri.afternoon,and also helped at set-up, and Eldora Anderson came for a couple of hours Thurs. afternoon. Denise, Claudia, & I were drop off sights.
We had steady business and almost everyone bought something,so all in all it was a good sale. We made a total of $1265 + the $32 which equals $1297 with matching funds. I read in the paper that the HUGE Hugo tornado sale, at the new school, ( I went & it was a mad house) made $6000 and they considered it wonderful. They had tons of stuff and workers. So in comparison I think we can say ours was a success as well.
Thanks again everyone who worked, donated, collected and anything else. Forgive me if I omitting anyone, easy to do with such a dedicated group.
I want to say a big THANK YOU to all who helped and so does Karen:
A great big thank you from all the animals of Red
Lake and Red lake Rosie's Rescue for all the wonderful people who helped us once again to have a great fundraiser. We are forever grateful to you all!!
