The annual Agassiz United Church garage sale is coming back to the community on Sept. 7.
The sale, now in its 37th year, is put on by the Agassiz United Church to help raise funds for Agassiz-Harrison Community Services, the church’s mission and services fund, and the church’s general fund.
Throughout the day on Saturday, Sept. 7, community members will be able to come by and look through the collection of gently-used items available for sale. Features in this year’s garage sale include some vintage, framed prints, as well as ornate picture frames, a pair of children’s chairs painted with the Cat and the Fiddle nursery rhyme and Royal Albert China.
In addition to the garage sale, the United Church Women’s group will be organizing its homemade baking table yet again. Traditional Russian borscht and sandwiches will be available at the lunch counter, with borscht available for sale by the quart.
The garage sale will be held in the Agassiz United Church hall and parking lot (6860 Lougheed Highway) from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7.
Anyone wishing to donate items to the garage sale can drop off items at the church on Tuesday, Sept. 3, Wednesday, Sept. 4 and Thursday, Sept. 5. Larger items can be picked up by the church that same week.
This year, the garage sale will no longer be able to accept donations of old TVs, computers, computer desks, electronics, couches, large china cabinets and mattresses.
