Get ready for the Quadra Philippine Connection's extravaganza of a garage sale to be held on Sunday, September 25th at the Quadra Community Centre. This year promises to be the year for furniture, so if you're on the look-out, be sure and come early since line-ups begin before 9:30! We have already been receiving beds (check out the classified ads if you'd like an early bird), couches, dressers and all kinds of other items to furnish every room. This year all furniture will be on the stage, offering easy access in and out through the large stage door. So please drop-off larger items by driving up to the south-east side of the building at the back.
Please note that we are no longer accepting TVS, but these as well as computers can be recycled at the C. River Bottle Depot, 1393C Maple.
Drop-off locations for your clean, saleable items are as follows until Sept. 23rd. (Please check to make sure appliances work, and then label them as such. It is also helps to label bags of clothing as "children's, men's, women's or teens"!)
Q. Cove 858 Prentice Place 285-3288
S. End 307 Sutil Road 285-3695
Heriot Bay 684 Cramer Carport
Back Road 1068 Milton Road 285-2076
305 Smiths Road 285-3457
Direct drop-off to the community centre is available on Saturday, September 24th from 10 - 2 pm.
We are still in need of extra trucks and drivers for both the beginning and end of the sale. As well, able bodied individuals are always appreciated who are willing to pack up at the end of the sale. To volunteer in any way, please contact Carol at 285-3035.
We look forward to this being another successful and rewarding community effort in support of the children of the Lubo-Hilltop and Basao-Dilag daycares in the northern Philippines. See you there!
