Grads host flea market

Coming off a successful fashion show earlier this month, the grad class at Parkland Secondary School is gearing up to host a flea market

Parkland Secondary graduating student Breanna Clooney. She and other student and parent volunteers are having a flea market fundraiser on April 26 at the high school.

Coming off a very successful fashion show earlier this month, the graduating class at Parkland Secondary School is gearing up to host a flea market.

Breanna Clooney, who is graduating this year, says this is the first time the school will have a flea market and they hope the community responds.

The event itself happens in the school gym on Saturday, April 26 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The grad class, Clooney said, is accepting donations for their tables at the event and those can be dropped off at the school on Friday, April 25 between 2 and 5 p.m.

Clooney said items should be gently used and the public is welcome to rent tables at the flea market for $20 each.

“This year, this event is going to be a test,” she said, adding they hope to raise money to put towards the class after grad events at the Mary Winspear Centre on June 25. Students and parent volunteers will be helping out with the flea market.

To learn more, to donate or to rent a table, call 250-655-2700.
