Toy Garage Sale Extravaganza and Community Garage Sale Day

Tomorrow’s the big day! It’s finally arrived…and I won’t even be here to enjoy it.

The details are online and it sounds like there’s a lot to see and do. Here’s the map but I would check out the Yard Sale Event Page for last minute additional addresses.

Fernie Community Yard Sale 2018 Map

Special notes:

Fernie Child Care Society and Wildsight Elk Valley have teamed up to have a TOY garage sale at Max Turyk School from 8-12.

Fernie Hospice Bake Sale at 891 2nd Avenue

The Arts Station will be participating in this year’s Community Yard Sale. We will be selling old canvases, costumes, fabrics and whatever else we find in our basement! If you have any creative projects coming up, this could be your chance to pick up what you need to get the ball rolling. All proceeds to the Arts Station.

Wildsight Elk Valley will also host a “White Elephant” yard sale at their office at 891 Second Avenue in Fernie, where citizens who are inspired to declutter but don’t have the time to sell their goods can donate them to the Wildsight Elk Valley branch Yard Sale.

“A Hardy Town” Sculpture Unveiling Tomorrow

did you know - city of fernie news

Public Art Unveiling

June 1, 2018 (12:00pm – 1:00pm)

The City of Fernie, along with Artists Michael Hepher and Paul Reimer, will be officially unveiling “A Hardy Town” sculpture on June 1, 2018 at 12:00 PM at the Fernie Arts Station.  The public is invited to join in a short ceremony to unveil the artwork.

This piece was developed to commemorate the 1908 fire that devastated the community.  The artists’ focus was to showcase the strength of Fernie and the resiliency of the people who rebuilt the community. The funding stipulated that the art must commemorate a significant community story that has shaped the history of the city and the Great Fire of 1908 was chosen as a dramatic, defining moment for Fernie. “Our piece uses the idea of leaning forward.  Philosophically the leaning carries forward the metaphor of people depending on one another for support, their lives interlocking” Hepher stated.

A total of $50,000 in funding was received for the project through a joint application between the City of Fernie and the Fernie Museum to the BC Canada 150: Celebrating B.C. Communities and their Contributions to Canada Grant Program. The grant required $10,000 of matched funds from the city, which was allocated from the Station Square Redevelopment Project, funded by the Resort Municipality Initiative.

The sculpture will be permanently installed at The Arts Station.

Wildsight Shares

Wildsight Elk Valley branch offers a share shed with a nice list of shared items, which makes perfect sense because you don’t need to buy everything. I am certainly not going to buy an apple press. Couldn’t this be expanded to the whole community because there are things we need once in a while, such as a hedge trimmer, but could I borrow one instead? I certainly don’t dehydrate fruits very often and if I did want to, I could contact Wildsight.

If anyone needs a large 100 year old paper cutter, don’t worry about it, just contact me and you can use mine.
