Pine Street Yard Sale Drop-Off This Saturday

I already mentioned the Sierra Club U of R Yard Sale this Saturday.
And it looks like the Church Hill Yard Sale will be on May 20.

But Pine Street Baptist Church is having a yard sale on May 19th (not this Saturday, but next one) at 8 am.
All proceeds will benefit the mission activities of the church, such as CARITAS homeless ministry, adult home ministry. Their youth group will be selling coffee and donuts that morning and hot dogs and drinks around lunch to raise money for their summer camp activities.

The Church is accepting donated items for the sale this Saturday from 10 am until 2 pm or on Friday, May 18th from 4 pm to 8 pm.They will also be glad to pick up at a convenient time by appointment. Call or email the Church to set up a time (804 644 0339, info at

This and other yard sales can be a good way for students to recycle their belongings at the end of the year, instead of dumping them in the trash.

1st Precinct
Belle Isle 9:30 p.m.
A group of males reported they were assaulted by a group of males.

I am guessing this was last night?
