GIRO is one of the social centres for the island. If you want to meet friends and neighbors go to the GIRO on Wednesday or Saturday and they will be there. Not only that they have a wide range of used, slightly used and sometimes brand new stuff. People bring in the oddest things that they brought to Gabriola but find they don't need, clothes that no longer fit in or fit. Many of the costumes for our plays start here even if its just sheets used to make the trial sloppers, Every year there is a fashion show based on clothes from GIRO. Plumbing, computers, bubble wrap, cutlery, crockery, books - the list goes on. Its also where we recycle plastics, bottles, cardboard etc.You gotta love the GIRO.
