Helping out the quints: Crista Shores residents organizing yard sale event
June 11, 2008 · Updated 2:29 PM
Martha Werner was in charge of the Grannys Attic annual yard sales raising as much as $5,000 for Crista Shores Retirement Community from donated items.
The resident council decided to scrap the program, but Monday morning, Werner, a seven-year resident of Crista Shores, was examining a pile of odd items and promptly marking them with green sticker prices. She and a handful of other volunteers sorted through a months collection of yard sale merchandise in a storage room on the second floor of the communitys main building.
It is the first time a Crista Shores yard sale is benefitting the outside community. The funds raised will be donated to the Stevensons of Poulsbo who recently welcomed five new members to their family.
Its exciting, Kitsap County has never had quintuplets before, said Linda Heyden, director of community relations for Crista Shores.
