Selling tickets

 

 

Gary Martin wandered the streets of Maxville on Saturday during the village’s sidewalk sale selling $1,000 raffle tickets, the winner to be drawn at this weekend’s Maxville Fair on Sunday, June 23 at 5 pm. All proceeds from the raffle benefit the St. Vincent de Paul food bank and volunteers will be roaming the fairgrounds Fair weekend selling tickets. We caught up with Mr. Martin under the eaves of the busy Maxville Firefighters BBQ fundraiser tent, a popular spot during the sale. This year marked the 20th anniversary of village-wide event, and despite the rain, residents set up and treasure hunters roamed Main and side streets, mixing with residents and picking up a few treasures. The community sale was organized by the Maxville Chamber of Commerce whose dedicated volunteers have been instrumental in helping revitalize and beautify Maxville’s downtown centre and galvanize business in the village.
