TRASH OR TREASURE: Dave Welch finds just what he needs at Whanganui's Returned and Services Association (RSA) garage sale. It was on Saturday morning and was a cracker, president Ted Morris said. The association made more than $1000 by selling items members had donated and items it no longer wanted, and there was also a sausage sizzle. "It was all clear profit," Mr Morris said, marvelling that people wanted some of the odder things - from cast-iron camp ovens to a big canoe. The money raised will probably go to the Poppy Fund, to help local veterans. The RSA is now pondering other fundraising possibilities, such as a car boot sale in its St Hill St carpark.
