The Great Glebe Garage Sale is on May 28th 2016

Dear Neighbours:

We all love the Great Glebe Garage sale. It’s a fabulous community-wide event. It’s a celebration. It’s another thing that makes our neighbourhood really special. Let’s do it even better in 2016!

SOCIAL: Let’s all make sure we remember to give our 10% of sale proceeds as a donation to the Ottawa Food Bank. You can do your donation on-line at http://ottawafoodbank.ca/donate/. Remember that the roots of the Glebe Community Association-organized event is to give back to those in greater need.

ENVIRONMENTAL: This year we are again going to make special efforts towards environmental stewardship and the responsible and pro-active disposal of left-overs from the garage sale. Check out our detailed guide!

And if you will be out of town for the weekend, you can still participate: give your stuff to Ecology Ottawa’s Great Green Garage Sale so that your stuff can be re-purposed, up-cycled or re-recyled. For pick-up info see https://ecologyottawa.ca/annual-events/garage-sale/
