The Rotary Club of Vermilion honoured more than 150 volunteers who donated over 2000 hours of hard work to this year’s garage sale. Volunteers and Rotarians enjoyed BBQ burgers and smokies at the Heritage Park Oven on April 25.  

This year saw a record number of volunteers from the community who did a variety of jobs, including picking up and setting up tables, gathering donations from various donors, organizing all the merchandise, and the final clean-up. This event could not have happened without the unwavering support of community members donating their valuable time to help raise money that the Rotary Club uses to support various organizations throughout the area.  

The Club is especially thankful for the youth volunteers who contributed their time and effort to every aspect of this year’s sale. Minor Hockey, the JR Robson Students Union, the Marauders Football Team, and the Local Cadet Corp. all provided some very valuable sweat equity over the past three weeks. 

More heartfelt thanks to new contributors: Inclusion Alberta/Lloydminster, and Cenovus Energy who not only provided manpower but also generously donated $2,000 through their Cenovus Cares program. 

A final thanks to the Vermilion Fire Department who provided support before, during, and after the sale. Once again it was a record clean-up time on Saturday afternoon. 

This year’s signature donation cause was the Lt. Col. WC Craig Armoury. The club donated $7,500 to the ongoing renovations of the building.
