Park association indoor garage sale a great success

KELSEYVILLE – The Clear Lake State Park Interpretive Association (CLSPIA) held an indoor garage sale in the Kelseyville Senior Center on Feb. 9, an event made successful through donations and work of association board members, docents and friends of the park.

The one-day sale netted more than $1,500 for CLSPIA’s Education Pavilion Fund for construction of a year around facility in Clear Lake State Park.

Many benefited besides the pavilion fund.

All donated books went to the Kelseyville Senior Center’s book sale held in the annex at the same time.

Items not sold were distributed to the Lake Family Resource Center in Lakeport and Kelseyville Methodist Church Thrift Shop.

In addition, a petition in protest of closing the county's two state parks was available for signature with well more than 125 signatures. It also was signed by Congressman Mike Thompson, Mrs. Thompson and Thompson's district representative Brad Onorato, who stopped by during a tour of the county's senior centers.

CLSPIA sincerely thanks the entire community for supporting this project, especially those who purchased items and the Kelseyville Senior Center for their wonderful cooperation and use of their great facility.
