Annual Garage Sale - June

The community hosts a one-day Garage Sale on the first Saturday in June. The Community League also arranges at the end of the day for a charitable organization to pick up any unsold items. Sport Central has often set up an area in the community for families to donate their surplus sports equipment.  Details are communicated in the Spring.

Party in the Park - June

This event has taken place on the same day as the annual Garage Sale. We look forward to bringing back this event in 2022 providing there is some volunteer support from the community. If you are interested in assisting with this event please email the Community League.
