VFW Auxiliary hosts indoor yard sale at Vet’s Hall

On November 19, the VFW Auxiliary Post 5689 held an indoor yard/bake sale at the Vet’s Hall in Burney.

About one dozen vendors participated selling new and used items as well as crafts and baked goods. Dottie Sales had a booth for the Veterans and cheerfully welcomed and thanked all who came.

I personally enjoyed visiting the table of Joel Francis and two of his friends who were selling scented wax melts. Joel makes the wax melts from natural soy wax adding a variety of fragrant and pleasing essential oils. He lives in Burney and operates his business year round. If you would like to learn more about his scented wax melts and warmers you can reach Joel at 530-238-0399.

Meanwhile, back in the kitchen the Auxuliary had prepared hot soup and rolls – perfect for a snowy day.
