It’s yard sale time

I know a lot of us have been cleaning out our closets and garages to make room for spring and summer stuff and are planning to have a yard sale very soon. Please remember that items that you don’t sell there will really help the Thrift Store in Walker if they are in decent condition and sellable. The store is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and they would really appreciate your help with good donations. The proceeds they make go to assist our Valley seniors, so it is all for a worthy cause.

Pasture golf

Remember, April 6 is the Lions Club Cow Pasture Golf Tournament. It is held at the Giorgi Ranch on Topaz Lane and is always a really fun day. Signups are at 9 a.m., with the tournament beginning at 10 a.m. For more information, call Dave at (530) 495-2822 or Mike at (530) 495-2552.

Easter Egg hunt

The Antelope Valley Lions Club will be holding their annual Easter Egg Hunt for kids of all ages on Sunday, beginning at 1 p.m. Please be sure you are there before starting time so your kids won’t miss out on the rush to find some eggs. This event is held at the park area of the Community Center in Walker and always has a great crowd of kids.

This and that

Recently, we have all missed the chance to have a tasty breakfast in the Valley, but the good news is that there are now two places to enjoy the morning meal. The Meadowcliff Restaurant still has their good meals, and now Mountainview Barbecue is serving really great ones, too. Both restaurants are only open on weekends for now, but they will soon expand their schedules.

A reminder for area seniors is that the Senior Center has free bingo games in April on the Friday the 12th and the 26th. The games start right after lunch is over and don’t cost anything to play. The winners of the games receive a certificate for a free lunch at the senior center.

Happy Easter to all.
