The Cochrane Kiwanis Club is holding a huge garage sale on Friday, June 24, and Saturday, June 25 and more items are welcomed.

Club president Ron Gosselin says the sale is being held to help raise funds towards the $5,000 remaining to be paid for the $257,000 upgrade at the Centennial Playground in East Cochrane.

Donated items will be accepted until Thursday, June 23. It can be delivered to 1 Glenbrook Bay. Pickup can also be arranged by contacting Jackie Depper at or phoning 403-932-5796.

"There's going to be a lot of different things," says Gosselin.  "You know, one person's surplus is another person's gold."

The playground isn't quite ready for use and is fenced off. A few finishing touches remain before it will be open.
