Bremerton Rotarian Bill Walgren is putting his life on the line again today for the sake of the Rotary Annual Garage Sale at the Kitsap Pavilion. The sale runs from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Walgren will be working security at the event but unlike last year, he’ll know to move out of the way quickly as soon as the gates open at 8 a.m.

“Last year we had a couple people trampled,” said fellow Rotarian Dick Burkey, cajoling Walgren into making a statement while the two were setting up on Thursday afternoon.

“That was me,” Walgren confirmed, clearly pleased that the garage sale is such a hit.

Last year, RAGS raked in nearly $40,000 for the four participating Rotary clubs: Silverdale Sunrise, Silverdale Noon, Bremerton and South Kitsap.

RAGS takes in donations from the community to host a garage sale that includes everything, including (literally) kitchen sinks.
