As spring approaches, the buzz is all about renewal at Monterey Recreation Centre.

The annual rummage sale offers residents opportunity to make old new again by dropping off their unwanted items or purchasing something new-to-you.

“It’s good for the environment. We like to support the reduce, reuse, recycle practice,” said Camille Wood, president of the Oak Bay Seniors Activity Association.

Funds raised go to the association that supports equipment and little extras such as birthday cakes, flowers and financial assistance to the more than 40 clubs at Monterey Recreation Centre.

Residents can bring donations of clean and useful items to the Garden Court at the recreation centre, 1442 Monterey Ave. now through Friday, Feb. 26 at noon.

“It’s a way to give back,” Wood said. “It helps our members to clean out their houses and apartments, encourages team work among the rummage sale team and encourages new friendships.”

The sale runs Saturday, Feb. 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
