A Community Triumph: NOVA West Island and Les Amis Beaurepaire's Fantastic Garage Sale

Updated: Jun 13

Great ideas are born every day, but it takes a remarkable community to bring them to life. On Saturday, May 11th, NOVA West Island and Les Amis Beaurepaire joined forces to host a truly spectacular communal event. Once again, Mother Nature smiled upon us, contributing to the overwhelming success of the day.

With over 100 garage sales taking place throughout the village, the event promised to be a grand affair—and it did not disappoint. The village buzzed with various activities, including vibrant lemonade stands, delightful mini concerts, and the innovative concept of a thrift shop. The sense of community and camaraderie was palpable.

At the NOVA booth, we raised an impressive $648.50 ($508.50 from items sold and $140 from cookies). The overall garage sale brought in $1,239.00, with an additional $826.15 donated online, bringing our total to an incredible $2,714! We are profoundly grateful for the community's unwavering support and the sacrifices made by so many. From donating clothes to setting up and taking down individual garage sales, every effort did not go unnoticed.

A special thank you goes out to Geneviève and Lucie, who took charge of this year's new additions. Your energy and enthusiasm were contagious, and your willingness to do it again next year is priceless. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support. The funds raised will go directly towards continuing our vital support and services for the community. This event exemplifies what can be achieved when we come together with a shared purpose and spirit of generosity.

Let's keep this wonderful momentum going! 💙
