OTTER LAKE June 2, 2018
On Saturday, the grounds of St. Charles Borromeo Church in Otter Lake were filled with people and a vast assortment of odds, ends and everything in between for sale.
In the rectory, there were baked goods, in the parking lot there were several tables of garage sale items and on the lawn, members of the local fire department barbequed up some grub for the hungry shoppers.
Joan Dubeau, who helped coordinate the event, explained that the funds raised go towards the day to day operation of the church. She said that this is the second year they have had the event.
