HOW WEST BENCH NEIGHBORS CAN GET INVOLVED:
Fathers Day Saturday Weekend "Yard Sale" Event advertised in Skaha Matters during the months of May and June using social media outlets, signage to promote the community event. Penticton Herald and Western News ads week of event.
Suggest individual homes place their own ads as well [direct traffic to your door] in the Penticton Harold for Saturday's paper or Western News for Fridays edition. Best to call them directly.
Expect a lot of people. Prepare to haggle with your prices - that's the fun of it all'
REMEMBER you are trying to 'De-junk your treasures...."'Aren't you" ?

Directions to West Bench from Penticton - Hwy 97 North
Turn LEFT at Doc's Golf Centre up hill - Directional signs displayed
Display your yard sale signs and or balloons at your own homes / telephone posts so that people can find you. When you are sold out [or burnt out] take your balloons / signs down.
Some suggestions: get your neighbors together at one (home) location / a park area / get your kids involved setting up lemonade aid stand. Its been HOT the pass few years. This always add to the yard sale festivities and event: a great way for kids to make some summer monies.
Please remove any of your signs / balloons you tack on telephone posts or other. We like to clean up after our event is over. This is appreciated by everyone in our communities and RDOS.
