Congratulations to the Parish of St. John the Apostle, Port Moody for organizing and executing a successful parish event in August, traditionally the month of the year when Anglicans take time off from church activities. The Garage Sale took place the morning of August 17 with the Port Moody parish welcoming a steady stream of bargain hunters who were warmly welcomed by the parish team under the leadership of Bob and Kristin Kuhn.
Among those parishioners joining Bob and Kristin on site was former warden Terry Walton who explained that the Garage Sale is usually held in the late spring but due to a variety of factors that wasn’t possible… so the August date was chosen.
The St. John’s Garage Sale is a comprehensive marketplace with a huge variety of items available for viewing in five different rooms in two separate neighbouring buildings on the parish site. Everything from fine linens to tools including: luggage, patio furniture, clothing, glassware, appliances, lighting, toys, games, bicycles, books, DVD’s, CD’s and original art was available. In fact for 2019 the use of the word august as an adjective would be quite appropriate.
And of course it wouldn’t be an Anglican parish event without refreshments, freshly made and at bargain prices. Long time parishioner, Rosa Weisensel and current warden Ruby Ng prepared plates of ham & cheese and cucumber sandwiches for hungry shoppers.
