Mega Garage Sale another big success

The annual Côte Saint-Luc Mega Garage Sale was another huge success on Sunday, May 25,  at the Confederation Annex of Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park. 

Big crowd

“As residents are always encouraged to reduce, reuse and recycle this event couldn't be more appropriate,” Mayor Anthony Housefather said. “We’d rather items find a new use with someone who needs them than be tossed in the garbage.”

There were 60 tables set up under the roof of the Confederation Annex. Prepared food was available on site.

New this year, the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library had a table and sold gently used books. The funds collected by the sale of used books will go towards the purchase of a piano for the library.

I was also pleased to see the Côte Saint-Luc Cats Committee on site. Bram Eisenthal, our new partner in the Animal Protection area, was there as well to promote his excellent Precious Pets newspaper.

Also, Côte Saint-Luc was accepting old bikes on behalf of SOS Vélo, a non-profit organization that helps disadvantaged adults learn job skills. SOS Vélo takes used bikes and builds new ones, using about 70 per cent recycled parts.

The event co-chairpersons were Councillor Dida Berku and Councillor Steven Erdelyi. The annual Mega Garage Sale was launched in 2007.

Thanks to all of the staff and volunteers. Members of our Volunteer Citizens on Patrol (VCOP) were there setting up as of 5:30 a.m.
