Spring time is here and summer is on it’s way. Today we will take a look at the events during this year’s spring and summer in the Pend Oreille Valley.  We can already begin to see the buds starting to appear on the trees and plants which means gardening season is set to begin. During the spring months there are plenty of community events for your family and friends to take part.

May Day Yard Sale Day
In addition to gardening it’s an excellent time of year for, you guessed it, spring cleaning. If you’re excited to get rid of some of that old stuff that’s been lying around then be sure to mark your calendar for May 3 as that is the annual yard sale day in the area. The annual yard sale day is an great way to save money on some of those treasures you’ve been looking for!
