Rain holds off for Fraser yard sale
By Norma Brand
The month of May was very wet in Fraser and the surrounding area, and June has started out with rain almost every day. Mother Nature gave everyone a break on Saturday, June 5; this was the day for the yard sales on the hill. She gave her blessings so everyone could travel and take advantage of the variety of items for sale.
The Fraser Ladies Get Together
Club held their “Indoor Yard Sale” at the
Donna Brown baked cookies which went on sale for 10 cents each, both grown ups and children enjoyed them. A baby, named Willie, was seen observing everything from a special carrier attached to his mother. It was a good day to visit with people and to find that special item that you didn’t know you needed. Garden plants and white lilac bushes found new homes, and from the appliance table TV sets, coffee makers, miter saws, waffle makers were purchased.
Contractor, Carl Stemrich, his crew and his sub contractors have already been at work on the remodel job. The check out table was stationed in front of the door to the new bathroom, and everyone who attended the event Saturday could see the progress. Now when the weather turns cold and the winter winds blow you won’t have to shovel a path through the snow to the out door toilets.
The Club sends it’s thanks to everyone who donated items and to those who came to shop. They appreciate your generosity; you made this day a big success.
