Mountaineer Area Council Hosts 'Greatest Garage Sale on Earth'

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

People flocked to the parking garage on Spruce Street in Morgantown on Saturday afternoon for "The Greatest Garage Sale on Earth."

The event is put on by the Mountaineer Area Council Boy Scouts. The group serves Monongalia, Preston, Taylor and Marion Counties.

The event is to help raise awareness about the Mountaineer Area Council Boy Scouts group and to bring in the community to take advantage of some 'new to you' belongings.

"The event is predominantly a fundraiser and to raise awareness for the local scout council," said Tim Rumble, The Vice President of Membership with the Mountaineer Area Council Boy Scouts. "There are folks that don't think the scouts exist anymore. So hosting an event like this gives us an opportunity to get out in the community and show some things, some of what we're doing in the community."

Some people were even able to leave their information at the event to be recruited as a scout.

The scouts will be doing their normal round up in the fall where they get out into the school systems and raise some more awareness about the group.

There are also plenty of other opportunities to join the council. Visit its website to find out more information.
