Don't bother packing a lunch when you check out the sixth annual Shoreline Yard Sale and BBQ July 9
The communities of Mordon, Burlington, Harbourville and Black Rock will set up, rain or shine, for the popular event.
Just like past years there will be yard sales stretching along the main drag between the four communities, as well as flea-market-style tables around each community centre.
Of course there will be food. Tina Lutz helped organize the event. She says each community will serve a meal Saturday, and they will be staggered so the hungry shopper can be well fed all the way along the route.
The feast starts in Mordon, where the community will serve its famous fishcake breakfast from 8 to 10:30 a.m.
Lutz says the idea is to continue on to Burlington, where a canteen will be serving up cold drinks and hot dogs. Then, she says, Harbourville starts selling lobster rolls at 11 a.m. “until we sell out – and we always sell out.”
Local Harbourville fisherman donated about 45 kilograms of lobster, and Lutz says it will still likely be gone by 2 p.m.
Finally, Black Rock puts on a dessert spread, with strawberry shortcake and carrot cake.
“It's a pretty fun event, and it's starting to catch on,” Lutz says.
She says people have come out from all across the province, and even from as far away as P.E.I. “You meet some interesting people each year.”
Maps can be picked up at community centres in all four communities. Lutz says the money raised from the meals goes back into the communities, to help maintain their community centres, among other things.
