Not counting all the people who contributed items, we had 34 of our members and friends work to make the sale a success – transporting tables and saw horses, picking up items, sorting and pricing thousands of items, and the staffing the sale itself. Our thanks goes out to Niki Henry, Roze Bentley, Sandy Wickstrom, Alicia Genia, Laura Frey, Beth Macleod, Vicki Chessin, Jen Prout, Laura McBride, Susan Powers, Gisela Moffit, Tom Moffit, Terry Tribe, Ricky Courlander, Pam Lewandos, Janis Shinn, Carolina Gutierrez, Victoria Sladek, Don Rust, Sharon Rust, Joyce Henricks, Mary Alsager, Dawn Daniels, Betty McBride, Mari Potter, Carol Rard, Stacy Guthrie, Ananda Guthrie, Kris Los, Richy Los, Justin Bentley, Chris Bauerle, Josh Bauerle and Norma Bailey.
Now…drum roll!! Our profit from the garage sale this year was $1396.70!
We took all the books that weren't sold at the garage sale and donated them to Better World Books which, since 2002, has reused or recycled over 216 million pounds of books and raised $18 million for global literacy and local libraries.
