Emmanuel Anglican Church in Gibbons took part in the Gibbons Town Wide Garage Sale, held on Saturday, September 10. The church sold pies, and cookbooks and had its own garage sale table.
"You cannot believe it until you see it; there are tables up and down Mainstreet and many home garage sales. Also, the Farmers Market and more tables at the Cultural Center," says parishioner Willa Gorman.
As well as table sales, pie, and coffee, Emmanuel, Gibbons offered parking in the churchyard for a donation. Gorman says the parish will use a profit of more than $1,000 to paint the inside of the church hall.
"All had a good day," she says, adding: "All are invited to come and join the fun next year on the Saturday after the long weekend in September (if the event is held as usual). In the meantime, Emmanuel still has cookbooks available for $20."
