$n$ Yard sale to benefit city's aviaryPioneer Park Av


WALLA WALLA -- Peacocks and pie plates, pheasants and furniture, swans and snowshoes, but no early birds for the first Pioneer Park Aviary Yard Sale.

"We are doing this specifically for the aviary, so we thought it would make most sense to do this at the aviary," park maintenance supervisor Joan Schille said, making it clear that Pioneer Park would not become a regular flea market.

The goal of the two-day yard sale is to raise $6,000 to bring fundraising efforts to $82,500 by the end of October and on schedule, Schille said.

Currently, the aviary offices and incubator are filled with items that will be brought out Saturday morning.

Coordinators feel confident they have plenty of stuff to carry them through the two-day sale, but those wishing to donate "quality items" will not be turned away.

People wishing to donate should arrive early Saturday.

The yard sale will be on the south side of the aviary building, accessible from Whitman street, and will take place from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
