MARY GLENTZ and Marcia Jurakovich, both of Wakefield, organize baked goods during the annual Rummage and Bake Sale at Father Daniel Hall in Wakefield. The event was organized by the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Wakefield.

WAKEFIELD — Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Wakefield held its annual Rummage and Bake Sale on Saturday and Sunday.

The proceeds from the event, benefitted Father Daniel Hall, according to volunteer Janice Clark. The building was opened in 1961.

“We just want to keep the building going,” Clark said. “This helps pay for the utility bills, heat and it also helps us keep the building open in the winter for people who use it for indoor walking.”

The event took place over two weekends, and according to Clark, the community was “very supportive.”

“It has been very steady,” Clark said. “There has always been someone walking through to see what is available. We even had a lady stop in and tell us that she was here when the building was first built in 1961. She said that the ground breaking was very exciting.”

“If someone missed the rummage sale this year, they missed something good,” Clark said. “Don’t miss it again.”
