Bulbs fundraiser to benefit Books for Babes


Buy your bulbs now for fall planting and enjoy flowering narcissus in the spring.

Buy bulbs from the Books for Babes Bulb-in-a-Can fundraiser and you’ll be funding an Edison Elementary School service project that provides a bag of books for all newborns in Walla Walla. All proceeds benefit the program.

The pretty wrapped cans with a narcissus bulb inside make a nice holiday gift, according to organizers. Each one is $5. Bulbs will be delivered by Dec. 13. Orders should be emailed to bargabk@charter.net by Dec. 2. Payment is by check to Books for Babes, Edison School, 1315 E. Alder St.

Pioneer Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society and Toys for Tots are collecting new unwrapped toys from now until Dec. 13.

Toys or cash contributions may be delivered or mailed to Pioneer at 450 Bridge St. All toys and donations collected here are distributed to infants through age 18 who are in need in the Walla Walla area, including in College Place and Dayton. For more details, contact NJHS Advisor Alba Biagi at 527-3050 or abiagi@wwps.org.

McLoughlin High School’s Crimson & Black choir will give a guest performance Thursday during the Choirs of the Valley concert at Eastern Oregon University, La Grande. Melissa Cunnington is Mac-Hi’s choir director.

Admission is by donation to the 7 p.m. event at McKenzie Theatre in Loso Hall.

“This concert brings singers of all ages together in a life-long activity that is good for the soul,” said Peter Wordelman, professor of music and associate dean of EOU’s College of Arts and Sciences.

Performers range in age from 8 to nearly 80 in the collaborative event featuring the Union County Children’s Choir, EOU Women’s Choir, Grande Ronde Community Chorus and EOU Chamber Choir.

Etcetera appears in daily and Sunday editions. Annie Charnley Eveland can be reached at annieeveland@wwub.com or afternoons at 526-8313.
