On Sat Nov 18th Fraser Direct is holding its 8th annual Charity book sale. Come and see why people line up at 7 a.m. with their shopping baskets, ready to run inside at 8 a.m. Organizer Al Fraser says, "What amazes me is that people come out from the city (Toronto) for this. We've been getting hundreds of calls to verify the date. Clearly, everyone loves a bargain." The sale raises approximately $25,000 for local events and charities. This year's recipients will be the Salvation Army Christmas hamper program, Cancer Assistance Service of Halton Hills, Georgetown Hospital, Links2Care youth programs in Acton, the new indoor soccer facility and Fall Fair building in Acton, and Georgetown's Homecoming 2007 project. The sale is held at 100 Armstrong Ave. in Georgetown and the doors open at 8 a.m. This year, the sale will stay open an extra hour (until 5 p.m.), to accommodate the crowds. Please remember to bring cash or cheques (no debit or charge cards accepted).

Fraser Direct employee Krista Glass is getting buried alive with books-- she's reading about doing her last will and testament! There are 60,000 books for sale at the Fraser Direct Annual Charity Book Sale, 100 Armstrong Ave., on Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
