Avalon Pinhey and Marian McGahey, KDHA volunteers, helping at HEY DAY

submitted by Jean Gallant

Since the announcement by the Kemptville District Hospital Auxiliary that the ever popular Hey Day event will be held this year, there has been a lot of interest from the community! There have been offers of donations, help, publicity and volunteers.  

Hey Day is one of Eastern Ontario’s largest indoor garage sales, and this year it will be held at a new location – the North Grenville Municipal Centre (where the hockey rinks are), but you can still expect to see tables and tables full of treasures, collectibles, clothing, sporting goods, furniture, toys, purses and everything which will likely include the kitchen sink!

There are some things you won’t see there, because we can’t accept them. Things like: mattresses and box springs, large appliances like refrigerators and freezers, tires, car batteries, suitcases, TV sets, stereos, sports helmets, microwaves, computers, monitors, strollers, playpens, car seats, cribs and highchairs.

Donations can be brought to the N.G. Municipal Centre, 285 County Road 44, on Wednesday June 7, from 1pm to 7pm and Thursday June 8, from 9am to 8pm.

The sale begins on Friday June 9 from 6pm to 9pm and continues on Saturday June 10 from 9am to 1pm.  Mayor Peckford will be there to draw the 50/50 prize at 1pm on Saturday, so plan to purchase raffle tickets and stay to see if you’ve won! You might also want to check out the Silent Auction with lovely treasures.  

We need many more volunteers – can you help?  If so, please contact us by email at [email protected], or call 613-447-4492 and leave a message.  Thanks for your help!
