A big thank you from the bottom of my heart to all who were involved in making the garage sale such a wonderful success! We raised over $4500.00! I would like to personally thank Fr. Terry and Sister Judith Ann for their willingness to let us take over the parish hall for a couple of weeks. Also, thanks to all of our parishioners who so willingly donated, shopped and prayed for the success of our sale. And last, but not least, thanks to my fellow Ladies Guild members (including the men who also helped). These ladies, ages 7 to 90, were here morning, noon and night, day after day, working to ensure our sale was neat, clean and organized. We even lost power during a storm the evening before our sale started , but we continued working by candlelight to make sure we were ready to go the next morning! What a terrific bunch of volunteers we have! I truly feel we made a difference in the lives of the people who came to shop, as most could not believe what great bargains and high quality items were for sale. I heard many positive comments and our customers were so appreciative of our efforts! All of our unsold items have been donated to the South Side Mission Benevolence Center, which does not sell anything, but gives it all to needy families. So pat yourselves on the back, everyone, for a job well done! This could not have happened without your help!
