Mother’s Unite Garage Sale is being held on  Apr. 6 at the Trail Memorial Centre gym. The gym will be turned into a giant indoor garage sale for all items suitable for children from newborns to 12-year-olds.

The doors will open to the public from 10 a.m. to 1p.m. If you wish to sell items, you can rent a table for only $20, and turn those gently used items into cash. Register at Trail Parks and Recreation by Apr. 4.
