The Hallelujah Garage Sale on July 7 was a success, despite two torrential downpours! The fun along Church Street between 107 and 111 Avenues included a bouncy castle, live music, friendship bracelets, and, of course, shopping for bargains. Much of the activity took place at the rink. The event was supported by McCauley Revitalization.
