Garage Sale Fund Raiser .. done and dusted !

The Garage Sale Fund Raiser went off, I would like to say without a hitch but there were a couple, mainly that my partner who was going to carry all the items to the Community Hall was hospitalised for 5 days the day beforehand !!! Arrrrhg !!  but some wonderful members of the community stepped up to the plate. Thank you so much Kelly and Johno from the Coaching Station and Ian Bottomly for helping drag all the gear down to the hall, and to Kelly for helping set it all up with me!

 It was so wonderful to have their help and it helped make the event even better.

Strike a pose !

We were there at the same time as the local Farmers Market and having both on together proved a boon as it was a great event all 'round.

We raised about $900 or so, I am still waiting the last of the money to trickle in from promised purchases and will update the financial page with the exact amount as soon as everything is finalised and I go to town to bank the funds. You can stay up to date by going to the financials page here

A HUGE thank you to all the people who helped me and of course the wonderful, helping spirit that pervades the Nymboida Community
