Novinger comes out to support local teen

People over at Novinger attend garage sale to support student Callie Farrell.

This holiday weekend, one Heartland community is helping a student live her dreams.

People in Novinger, Mo. are holding a garage sale at the fire house to support Adair County R-I graduate, now Truman State University student, Callie Farrell.

She is going to Scotland to study abroad in January and held the sale to help raise funds for her expenses.

She appreciates and thanks the community for the support.

"I always wanted to study abroad. I want to get out and see the world before I start my career and settle down so I thought this would be great for me to see new things, meet new people, see how school is in different areas of the world," Farrell.

All the items sold at the garage sale were donated from other members of the Novinger community.

The garage sale is going on all weekend during the Labor Day Festival in Novinger, which will have events such as a car show, BBQ dinner and parade.
