Milton-Freewater fall cleanup seeks help


The Milton-Freewater Downtown Alliance is looking to make a clean sweep in the community this weekend.

The organization is coordinating a Fall Cleanup event and is signing up volunteers to help Saturday.

The cleanup will run along South and North Main Street, as well as Columbia Avenue, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Those who fill a trash bag will receive a ticket for a free barbecue dinner at Sam’s Corner Lazy MF BBQ Oktoberfest.

Participants will meet up at one of three locations: Century 21, 725 S. Main St.; the Milton-Freewater Senior Center, 311 N. Main St.; and Blue Mountain Community College, 311 N. Columbia Ave. To sign up, call 541-938-3727.

Winter sports lovers can get geared up for the season this weekend during the Walla Walla Skip Swap.

The annual consignment and sale event takes place Saturday and Sunday at the Walla Walla County Fairgrounds in the science/education building near the main entrance.

Gear and equipment for skiers, snowboarders and those who just need to stay warm will be offered.

Consignment items will be accepted from 10 a.m. to noon both days.

The sale runs 1-4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday.

Items include coats, gloves, hats, hoodies, boots, pants, bibs and gear. A 25 percent consignment fee is charged for items that sell. Unsold items must be picked up by 5 p.m. Sunday. All sales are final. For more details call 522-1443 or visit
