We are very excited for our 4th Annual Garage Sale,
this Saturday May 27th from 8am – 1 pm.
We have 44 homes registered, so the bargains are sure to be a hit for shoppers.
A hyper link is provided below that will take you to our interactive map. This is a much improved version of a paper map. By using this link you can access the map easily from a mobile device as you travel around the neighborhood. Feel free to share it with family and friends.
A photo of the map is below for those who prefer to save it or print a hard copy prior to attending the Garage Sale. We will not be printing maps, as we found they don’t get used in this technological age. Please find a list of the homes attached below the map, if the red pins on the map are too congested on your small phone screen.
Have a great weekend and we hope everyone gets a chance to explore our community garage sale and find that perfect item you are looking for.

We are raising money for Sean & Kelly Bueckert, our neighbours. We have organized a Benefit Concert that will feature Poppa Dawg and Jimmy LeGuilloux. The event will take place at the Creekside Theatre in Winfield on Saturday, May 20 at 1:30pm
For tickets visit www.creeksidetheatre.com or call 250-766-9309.
We will have a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction.
Donations are also accepted on their Go Fund Me page (https://www.gofundme.com/cr8u2c-seans-road-to-recovery).
Local Lake Country merchants and businesses are getting behind the fundraising for the Rail Trail in a big way. Thanks to the Turtle Bay Pub’s latest efforts, over $6000 was raised to assist in the completion of making the Rail Trail a reality. On May 5th, Teo’s Mexican Café is going to dedicate a portion of their sales to the Rail Trail cause. Mark Friday May 5th as a date to grab a Burrito and support the Rail Trail.
On Earth day, Saturday April 22nd, Turtle Bay Pub is donating 100% of the proceeds from every Turtle Bay Burger sold to the Okanagan Rail Trail Initiative. Go on out and enjoy mother nature and then stop in for a burger and a cold beer!
There will be great prizes raffled off for the month of April, with the final day to get tickets on April 22. Some of the raffle baskets include growlers of Backhand of God Stout from Crannog Ales, a selection of beers from Postmark Brewing and Whistler Brewing Co, a beautiful basket of wine and goodies from Gray Monk Winery, and more!
There will also be a Toonie Toss competition starting at 11am and continuing until there is a winner. The toonies go to the trail, and the winner gets a TEXAS MICKEY of Centennial Rye!
Every time you buy a Turtle Bay Burger you can enter to win a very cool Okanagan Spring Beer Fridge. Purchase extra ballots for $5 each or 5 for $20.
