The O’Keefe Ranch is hosting a yard sale this weekend and is looking for donations and buyers to come support the cause.

O’Keefe Ranch needs help to raise the roof – the roof on the General Store.

“I have started fundraising to put a new roof on the General Store, it being one of the main attractions at the ranch,” said Audrey Johnson, who has been a volunteer at the ranch for eight years. “The building is in good, sound shape except the roof is leaking badly. We have buckets all over when it rains.”

She is concerned because the store contains many artifacts, including original items owned by the O’Keefe family.

There will be a yard sale at the ranch Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Anyone who would like to donate items can call Glen at 250-542-7868 or Audrey at 250-558-7764 to arrange pick up. The ranch is also looking for donations of cash, tar paper, nails, shakes and labour and all donations are greatly appreciated. There will also be a hotdog sale fundraiser at Save On Foods at a date to be announced.
