The weather was wonderful for the Lion’s Head Hospital Auxiliary (LHHA) Plant Sale on June 1st, and so was the great turnout by our community’s plant lovers. Perennials ranged from the tried and true hostas and daylilies right to the unusual sea holly. The plants almost flew off the ground by the enthusiastic attendees. 

If you were not able to make it to the Plant Sale, don’t despair. There will also be a variety of plants on sale at the Annual LHHA Yard Sale at the Lion’s Head Arena on Tackaberry Street, Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7.

Remember that the drop off for donations to the Yard Sale is Friday morning, July 5. This is a wonderful way to participate in the new movement of reducing waste by repurposing. If you’ve got great goods that you no longer need or use, don’t throw them away, donate them to the yard sale. 

Don’t forget that there are always great treasures to be found at the yard sale. Every year people find something (or more often many somethings) that catches their eye.

Come join the repurposing revolution and help contribute to keeping health care close to home. Our local hospitals have a well earned reputation for excellence and our very, generous community support for the Lion’s Head Hospital Auxiliary’s fundraising efforts is responsible for our ability to contribute to much needed equipment. We are a small community but we are mighty.

More details will follow in the next issue of The Bruce Peninsula Press about items that cannot be accepted for donating at the yard sale (there are just some things we can’t take, eg. weapons, knives, appliances, BBQs, mattresses). In the meantime, start doing that deep clean and collect those suitable items to donate. Then come to the yard sale and see what strikes your fancy. People come from far and wide. Don’t be left behind and don’t leave empty handed.
