Pick up some spring flowers or herbs, your favorite history book and grab breakfast or lunch or a muffin from the bake sale prepared by members of the congregation at the Walker Chapel UMC annual Aprilfest. It will be held on Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Dawn Kyser, in charge of the book sale, says they are accepting gently used books until April 22. Last year they had thousands of books stacked on the long tables in Fellowship Hall for children, cooks, home repair, hobbies, history and biographies at bargain prices. She says please no textbooks, encyclopedias, cassettes, magazines or vinyl records.
Since they have so many interesting books, there is often a line down the sidewalk before opening for those hoping to score a real find amidst the stacks.
Flowers and herbs will be on sale outside the church, including red, violet and orange impatiens, pots of geraniums and lantana as well as hanging baskets of Boston ferns and ivy geraniums. Divisions of perennial plants will be accepted April 20-25. Shredded hardwood mulch and flats or six packs of plants may be ordered online at www.walker chapel.org/ for pick up or delivery.
All of the proceeds from Aprilfest are donated to local and global benevolences.
