Organizer Wanda Harrison described the annual Arden Seniors yard sale and barbecue as “remarkable” as she was totaling up the receipts.
“This is the annual fundraiser that the seniors do,” she said. “We’ve been doing it for around 25 years or so.
“It all gets donated back to the community, be it to the fire department, the food bank — we’re big, big supporters of the food bank — Rural Frontenac Community Services and the schools.”
For the record, the barbecue sold out and the peameal bacon sandwiches sold out.
“Thank you to all the volunteers.”
The next event in Arden will be the Arden Family Field Day at Recreation Park on Aug. 18 from 10am-4pm.
The official opening will be at 11am with Town Crier Paddy O’Connor.
Harrison said there will be plenty of games and many community members have donated goods and/or services.
