Letter: Coupeville Lions online garage sale raised more than $20,000

Letter to the Editor


The Coupeville Lions Club wants to express special thanks to our community and beyond who made this year’s virtual garage sale a huge success. More than $20,000 in sales were garnered from the purchase of items such as appliances, furniture, tools and plants.

All monies raised go right back into the community and to our many Lions projects.

It took innovation and dedicated work by our Lions members to logistically get online purchased merchandise safely to buyers throughout the summer while adhering to the various pandemic protocols. We especially thank the Coupeville School District for allowing us to use the elementary school on Saturday mornings throughout the summer for the online purchase pickups.

Everyone is looking forward to next summer when our annual “Biggest Garage Sale in the World” can again be staged on the last weekend of June. There is nothing like seeing several hundred folks happily rushing to get that special item in person.

Thanks again to all and please see our website, www.coupevillelions.org, for additional Coupeville Lions Club information.

Rick Walti, president
