These scholarships are entirely funded by revenue from our annual Yard and Plant Sale and holiday nut sales. This year’s Yard and Plant Sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, April 26, at the Church of the Nazarene, 158 Meadow Creek Road, Bonners Ferry.

The yard sale will include clothes, household goods, fabric, and plants for your home and garden.
