Yard sale was successful

The yard sale sponsored by the Hillyard Merchants Committee this past weekend made $501 - and was deemed a success by everyone. Next yard sale is on June 18.
More volunteers are needed to help out with the next sale - especially people who can staff the cash box and help get things organized before and during the sale.



Note: The Spokane Housing Authority was supposed to be here this morning at 8:30 a.m. to talke about the Agnes Kehoe Place - but no one has made it yet.

Great yard sale - and awards

The Saturday Hillyard Yard Sale got rained on a little bit, but shoppers had a good time in between showers and wind gusts, looking through books and magazines, glass, porcelain, kitchen gear and other gadgets. Stay tuned for an update on how much money was raised.
And in case you missed it, here's a link to the story from last week about Hillyard's Main Street award.
The Greater Hillyard Northeast Planning Alliance and The International District on East Sprague will both be recognized at a potluck reception prior to the city council meeting tonight. Reception is from 5-6 p.m. in the Chase Gallery, just outside city council chambers.

It’s yard sale season

The Historic Hillyard Merchants Committee is hosting a yard sale in Hillyard on Saturday, May 14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Don't miss this great opportunity to forage for some great deals - and of course you can stop at as many other yard sales as you want on your way to Hillyard.

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
