The annual multi-family garage sale is once again in the works. Anyone interested in joining in please phone Paulette at 403-574-2442. This is a favorite for many, it’s held in the Botha Hall, but not affiliated with any group. Local Gadsby and Botha families help make this a fun way to “Spring Clean”. Everything must be clean and in working condition. This year’s sale is booked for May 1 (set up) May 2 and 3 for sale.
