The Rossland Cubs had a successful day last Saturday with their garage sale held at the Scout Hall.

Fred Fontaine, leader of the Rossland Cubs said they rose more than their original goal of $500 with this fundraiser. The grand total being over $700. The money raised will go towards future camping excursions as well as camping gear and equipment.

Members of the community, volunteers and Cubs alike gathered goods and delivered them to Scout Hall on Friday evening in preparation for Saturday’s garage sale.

Despite the official hours, “people were lined up as early as 8:30 a.m.”, said Fontaine. Items for sale ranged from candles and toys, to couches and sporting equipment.

After the garage sale, the club gave back to the community by delivering whatever was leftover to the thrift shop and reuse center in Trail.

The Rossland Cubs put on several fundraisers throughout the year such as this garage sale and the bottle drive they did this past fall.

The club itself has about 16 members making it one of the largest Cub groups in the area.

Thanks to all the local support they receive, the Cubs are able to participate in more events that get the kids out there enjoying the Kootenays!
