Tumac to host Demo Days


In the market for a mower? Feel like testing a tractor?

Tumac Machinery hosts its Demo Days on Saturday. The farm, landscaping and outdoor equipment retailer will showcase its inventory in a public event from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Tumac, 3037 Melrose St., is the region's exclusive John Deere dealer. It also carries STIHL Power Equipment, Honda Power Equipment and Traeger Grill products.

The event is intended as a kickoff to mower season, so lawn and small power equipment will be part of the focus. The celebration runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and includes a barbecue featuring Traeger grills, a display by Wenzel Nursery and another by TumacOutdoorSupply.com . Master gardeners from the Washington State University Extension Office will be onsite. A bouncy house for children will be available, as well as ice cream from Schwan's.

Participants at the event can enter to win a new Traeger Grill. For more information call 525-4550 or visit www.tumacmachinery.com .


Bring a touch of spring indoors with flower arranging classes at Weeds Wicker Flowers.

Owner Irita Entze is starting up spring classes, teaching design and arrangement for centerpieces, wreaths, topiaries, swags, garlands, hats and more.

Supplies are available for purchase, but there is no charge for instruction. Class size is limited to six people, but the two-hour classes run multiple days from 7 to 9 p.m. at 248 N. Bellevue Ave.

Entze said she's also accepting signups for Flora Design Wedding Flower classes for those interested in designing and arranging their own wedding flowers. Those classes run 7-9 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
