Story

For the third time the sale was held in the centre concourse of Confederation Mall, but with the addition of an empty store across from the main space that was used for recorded music. This freed up room for books and printed music, and ensured adequate space between shelves for customers to move more comfortably.

The sale opened with the now traditional fanfare, written specially for the project by former symphony player Mark Rogers, played this year by two trombone players from the Symphony. Several media interviews ensured a full line-up of customers and continuing publicity throughout the sale maintained that interest.

During the sale, 97 volunteers helped out during the sale (in addition to over 40 core year-round volunteers), covering 199 shifts and putting in a total of 788 hours. The total of volunteer hours during the year exceeded 3000. Symphony volunteers, board members, orchestra players, SaskTel Pioneers, Royal Bank staff, Symphony and Community Chorus members all helped, as did others who enjoy the excitement of the sale.

The work of symphony publicist Jacquie M was crucial in finally getting the message out to the media, and to a wider public than before, that the sale has something for everyone. Several large donations of materials were received this year, including one of 210 boxes of mostly paperbacks.
