The Mariposa Gymnastics International Team will hold its first-annual Kids’ Used Books and Clothing Sale on Saturday, March 24 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and on Tuesday, March 27 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. The sale will be held in the foyer of the entrance to the Mariposa Gymnastics Club, 655 Harvie Settlement Rd. in Orillia. Free parking is available.

This is a wonderful opportunity for members of the club and the community to recycle gently used items and find great bargains! Members of the International Team will be accepting donations for this sale and donations can be dropped off at the Mariposa Club at the following times until March 27: Monday to Thursday: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Weekday Evenings: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

There will be a large decorated and labelled box located in the gym to drop off donations. During the Kids’ Used Books and Clothing Sale, cash and debit will be accepted as forms of payment. Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit card payments.  

Remaining items from the sale will be donated to organizations that support local families in need. Proceeds from this event are going to help support 25 Mariposa Gymnastics athletes attend the Handsprings for Hope Invitational Competition hosted by the Wilson School of Gymnastics and Dance in Chambersburg, PA April 14-15. 

Thank you in advance for your support!
