Shirley’s Community Hall is looking for a fresh front. They want to install a new fence of rustic West Coast design along with a gate, flag pole and upgraded gardens. To do this, they need to raise a total of $1,500. They already have $200 in the coffer.

A part of their fundraising effort is coming from a garage sale they will be hosting in tandem with their regular Sunday Market. It is slated to run on Sunday, July 14, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. People who want to liberate the “piles of stuff” from their garages (or basements) can book a table for $15. These funds will go towards the upgrade. Sellers keep the proceeds of their own sales.

The aspiration, says the Christopher Lucas, the vice president of the community hall and farmers market curator, is to finish the fence before Shirley Days in mid- August.

If you want to book a garage sale table or donate to the community hall upgrade, you can contact Mr. Lucas directly at 250-900-8817 (yes, that is a local number).
