Bake and garage sale was a huge success

Gisele Poliseno’s regular correspondence for the North Green Lake/Watch Lake area

After several busy days of preparation, the Watch Lake/North Green Lake VFD (WLNGLVFD) Auxiliary’s bake and garage sale was a huge success.

The ladies got together on May 11 to make 123 of their apple pies for the bake sale.

On May 18, the Sonny Johnson Memorial Fire Hall was busy with firefighters setting up tables and energetic auxiliary members arranging and pricing the garage sale items for the next day.

Saturday (May 19) morning was sunny and warm and the bargain hunters were at the door early.

They were pleased at the selection of items available especially the variety of home-baked goods.

Selling the breakfast sandwiches was also a huge success.

At the end of the day, we made $4,414.80.

The auxiliary would like to thank all the volunteers for their hard work to make this a great day as well as the individuals who donated items.
