The Phoenix Recreation Association is organizing its first annual Community-Wide Garage Sale.  The event will take place on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, May 31-June 2nd, 2019. Anyone in Headingley can participate by registering their own sale or renting a table inside the Headingley Community Centre.  Proceeds from the event will go to support the Phoenix Nursery School.

The Headingley Community Centre (5353 Portage Ave) will be our Community-Wide Garage Sale Headquarters on Saturday June 1st from 8am – 12noon.  A bake sale will be held at this venue and indoor tables are available to rent: 2 for $25, or 4 for $40.

If you prefer to host a sale in your own yard, you can join by registering your Garage Sale for just $10.  Although the Community Wide Sale dates are Friday-Sunday, you can choose to have your sale on all 3 days, or just 1 or 2 of the days AND you get to choose the hours you will be open.  Why should you register?  There are many benefits!  Maps will be available in both printed and electronic format with all registered sales marked on it.  The map will also have a detailed legend noting the days and times you choose to have your sale AND your sale item category list, such as: housewares, kids, tools, sports, etc.  This will make it easy for shoppers to plan their routes and shopping days & times!  The printed maps will be available at local Headingley businesses starting the weekend before the sale.   The event, along with a printable map & legend will be heavily advertised to bring people to Headingley from Winnipeg and surrounding communities.

If you plan on participating by having a sale on this same weekend, please don’t piggyback on the Community-Wide Sale without registering.  This way we all benefit from the increased exposure and community spirit!

The Phoenix Recreation Association expects this event to be a tremendous success for everyone involved!  Don’t forget, this will be an annual event, so let’s set the bar high and make this first Community-Wide Garage Sale amazing!

This weekend event will take place Rain or Shine.

To track minutes as a family or group/team, setting up an account is quick and easy online.

All of your active minutes count towards Headingley’s total.  Even light or incidental activity counts.  Here are some ideas of minutes you can log: walking, bike riding, gardening and yard work, golf, exercise, yoga, kids playing outside, jogging, baseball, soccer, pickleball, swimming, etc.  Every minute counts, so make sure to log all of yours!

We are working closely with many groups in our community to help log group/team minutes: Phoenix School, Phoenix Nursery School, Bright Beginnings Educare, Sports Teams, Headingley Senior Services, MHRD, Breezy Bend Golf Club, to name a few.  If you havent heard from us yet OR know of any other fitness, kids, exercise groups or teams please forward this email over to them or have them email us directly specialevents@phoenixrec.org

Make sure you log your activity minutes using your RM of Headingley Postal Code.  All individuals and community organizations within Headingley, using their Headingley Postal Code,  will be contributing their minutes to Headlingley’s total.
