It’s going to be another great Peachland gathering, with community groups and locals invited to take part in a special kind of garage sale – plus an info session on the new HUB project!
Organizer Madeleine Nixon is with the Peachland Community Connects Society. They’re hosting a Car Boot sale at the 50+ Centre parking lot on Saturday, May 28 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“They’re very popular in the UK,” she says, explaining that sellers can load up their wares in their vehicle, and display it out of the boot – or trunk, of their car / van / truck.
“It’s a great alternative for those who may not have a garage to host their own sale, or for those who spend a lot of time posting their goods for sale on social media.”
If you have stuff you’d like to sell, you need to reserve your spot by May 26. A parking spot rental is $20 and you can call (778) 214-1999.
There’s lots more going on at the 50+ Centre that Saturday – first off, it’s where this new Hub building will happen (it’s a big renovation to the existing building, plus construction of another, smaller annex building nearby). To get Peachlanders familiar with the project, Nixon says volunteers with the HUB (AKA Help Us Build) will be on hand. They’re also inviting community groups to set up a table inside the 50+ Centre.
“Since COVID, many community groups have had a slow start to getting up and running full throttle again. This is the perfect opportunity to inform citizens of what local community groups and organizations are doing as well as recruiting new volunteers for administrative duties and event planning,” she says.
Community groups just need to let organizers know they’ll be attending – you can call the above phone number, or email email@example.com
Oh, and the Lions will be serving breakfast that morning – breakfast sandwiches and beverages will be on the menu!
