Sale sends student on trip

A group of students at Clarence Fulton are organizing a kids garage sale Oct. 27

Following the success of the recent kids garage sale at the recreation complex, parents, and grandparents are invited to take part in another sale benefitting some local youth.

A group of students at Clarence Fulton are organizing a kids garage sale Oct. 27 and are selling tables to help pay for an upcoming cultural exchange trip.

Approximately 15 students will be travelling to Quebec, Ottawa and Montreal in March 2013.

“For almost two weeks we’ll be visiting Notre-Dame Basilica, Archaeology Museum, Olympic Park and Tower by funicular, Plains of Abraham Workshop, Chateau Frontenac, Observatoire de la Capitale, Sugar Shack, Canadian Museum of Civilization, Canadian War Museum, and take a tour of Parliament and Peace Tower,” said Ali Casanova, one of the students embarking on the journey.

“On the trip we hope to learn about Canada’s heritage, how Canada came to be the Canada we know today, the importance of our French culture and how they have played a significant role in our history.”

Ali’s mom, Michelle, got the idea to host a kids garage sale after seeing how successful the sales at the Vernon Rec Complex are.

“There were about 12 people on the wait list for tables,” said Michelle Casanova.

To raise money for the trip, the students are putting on a kids garage sale Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Eagle’s Hall.

Table rentals are available for $15 and students are also seeking donations of quality used baby and kid items.
