With spring cleaning in full swing, it is the season for yard sales. Come see what one local parish is letting go of by joining Melville Chapel United Methodist Church for its yard sale on June 7, near the overpass close to 5627 Oregon Ave., in Arbutus.

The sale will be conducted from 9 a.m. until noon and all are welcome.

After the yard sale, or the spring cleaning, whichever applies, you will likely have worked up an appetite.

That is why, on June 8, immediately following the 11 a.m. worship service, Melville Chapel United Methodist Church will host its annual Strawberry Festival.

The menu will include hot dogs, barbeque and rolls, along with assorted salads, followed by the strawberries, cake and ice cream. All are welcome. There will be a good will offering.

The church is at 5660 Furnace Ave., in Elkridge. Any questions about the festival should be directed to Dottie Smith at 410-796-5160.
