The 7th annual Giant Garage Sale, held at the Gravenhurst Curling Club

combined efforts of so many - over 30 volunteers, 7 'truckers' who

hauled all the items to the arena, Muskoka Transport who gathered all

the donations from Bracebridge, the Gravenhurst Curling Club and all

those who went out of their way to donate fabulous items.

invloved - It was hard work.
