Books for a cause
Darcy Banman, store manager of the local The Bargain Shop, showed off a display of used books that were available there Saturday during a sale to raise funds for Easter Seals charities. Hoping to top the $2,800 raised last year, the staff also is planning a bake sale for this Friday (beginning at 9 a.m.), a photo contest for people to vote on, and a yard sale April 5. In addition, their paper egg campaign has begun, with each “egg” costing $2. The initiative supports children with physical disabilities.
