Etcetera - 7/8/13


Seeking relief from the heat? Slide on over to Quail Run Retirement on Plaza Way for a cold root beer float and check out the “cool” cars. From 10 a.m.-noon Sunday visitors at 1701 Plaza Way will be able to enjoy an icy treat and scope out the automobiles on display courtesy of Walla Walla Cruisers.

Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food donations that will be directed to the Walla Walla Pantry Shelf in an ongoing effort to help feed those neighbors in need, said Parke Thomas, Quail Run manager.

For additional information call Quail Run at 509-529-2180, email or online see or “like” Quail Run’s Facebook page.

Speaking of chilly delectable and good causes, members of Mill Creek Wranglers 4-H Club are raising funds through an arrangement with Blue Palm Frozen Yogurt, 1470 Plaza Way, from 5-7 p.m. July 25.

The business will donate a portion of all proceeds raised from the sale of frozen yogurt treats in that time frame to the non-profit group.

It will enable the Wranglers to buy much-needed equipment to be shared for the caring and maintenance of animals that are being presented and shown at the Walla Walla Fair, said Regina Vandersloot in a release. “The skills and responsibilities for taking care of these animals are important life lessons for all who participate,” she said in a release.

Sarah Beechinor is the leader for the Wranglers, an 18-member strong unit for those between the ages of 9-17.

Club officers currently are Michael Lemons, 15, president; Brittany Lemons, 16, vice president; Anna Ruthven, 15, secretary; and Claire Clark, 12, treasurer.

For more information call 509-529-2198.
