It may not have seemed like ideal garage sale weather Saturday morning, but it was all good anyway because the big sale was under cover at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds.
With the bargains fresh on the tables, the day kicked off with a pancake, eggs and ham breakfast. It was perfect for the less than ideal weather outside.
The day is all part of the Bozeman's Breakfast Optimist Club's effort to raise money for youth oriented community projects. The big goal right now is to raise ten to fifteen thousand dollars for a new bowl and street course at the Skate Park in Kirk Park.
"We've been doing the GVSA thing, trying to raise money for the skate park, for, it's gotta be going on seven or eight years now. So we're finally going to break ground on a new part of the existing park, and then a couple of years down the road move on to the regional park. The city was kind of willing to work with us this time around and they're also, the park committee is giving us some money toward the skate park to do the renovation this summer," said Optimist Club member Brian Koenig.
Some other club projects include hunter education classes, purchase of sports equipment, and a handicap fishing pier and path at the Bozeman Pond park.
