The Palo Verde Improvement Association (PVIA) Rummage Sale begins this Friday and runs through Sunday. Many people look forward to this annual event and this year's sale promises to be better than any past sales. Rummage has already been coming in and most of it is very good quality.
PVIA plans to make the prices low for all the folks who come early or stay late. People come from far and wide to take advantage of the sale with many coming from as far away as Mexico to shop.
The Annual Rummage Sale begins April 4 from 8 a.m.- 3 p.m. and continues April 5 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. followed by April 6 from 8 a.m.-12 noon. Throughout the rummage sale, PVIA will also sell 50/50 tickets for a drawing scheduled for Sunday after the close of the rummage sale at 12 noon. Money from the sale and 50/50 will be used to pay club expenses for the year. PVIA board members hope many people show up to take advantage of the excellent items. Also, PVIA will still accept any donations to the sale and will pick up any rummage anyone wishes to donate just contact Winnie Barrett at 760-854-3456.
Palo Verde Rod and Gun Club's first of the month breakfast is scheduled for April 5. Cost of the breakfast which consists of hot cakes, eggs, bacon, potatoes, plenty of hot coffee and orange juice starts at 8 a.m. and is $2 for members and $5 for non-members.
Also happening this month is the PVIA Golf Tournament at Blythe Golf Course April 27. For more information or to sign up, call Ron Woods at 760-954-3421.
Blythe Cancer Resource Center sold 18 bouquets of lilies to Palo Verde residents. The money collected for the flowers will be used by BCRC to help local patients battling cancer with transportation and lodging costs.
Fort Gaston Historical Society sold the trailer and land this week that was donated a short time ago. The Society sold the trailer and land for a very fair price. And it was on the market for a very short time.
When the sale closes, the money from the trailer will go to pay on the mortgage the Society owes on the museum building. The sale has been a great relief to the group members.
Warning to all residents and valley visitors, it is time for the snakes to be coming out. Many sightings have already been reported. The Imperial County Sheriff's Office cautions residents, if bitten by a rattlesnack, to immediately go to the nearest hospital.
The Sheriff's office also reminds people to be careful when entering the remote desert areas without telling someone exactly where they are going. Each year lives are lost by those who are not familiar with the desert and are not equipped before heading out.
Next week, both chili recipes that earned second and third place at the recent chili cook off will be shared with readers.
Mark on calendars the upcoming PVIA Car Show scheduled for May 25 in Palo Verde. All bicycles, cars, trucks, low-riders, oldies, etc. are invited to participate. For more information call Winnie Barrett at 760-854-3456.
