May Hunt a good time for all

ARLINGTON — It was a warm sunny day for the May Hunt Saturday, when 37 vendors gathered in the city parking lot to sell a great variety of goods.

From baked goods by the Old Bags of Arlington, to red, white and blue patriotic items for sale by the women’s auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1561, the event also included Mom’s Club offering a finger printing service for children, and two young women, Victoria Beecher and Samantha Turner, who were raising money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research for the 3-Day Walk in September.

“Sales of the patriotic goods, including poppy lapel pins, benefit veterans in need, and proceeds from the baked goods and other stuff benefit cancer research,” said Terrie Scarscella.

Arlington Fire Department Captain Dave Kraski and firefighter Jason Abrahamson gave the kids something to do, with a city fire truck on display. They let kids climb up into the driver seat and see the view of the crew from the back seat.

One mother brought six kids over to check it out from the Mom’s Club booth, which was offering finger printing through the King County Sheriff’s Department, said Cecelia Smith.

Friends of 50 years, Terri Jennings, of Arlington, brought Joann Tobler from Snohomish to sell their hand-knitted dish cloths, homemade aprons and other useful items.

Some had second-hand items, others sold plants, and some promoted their own businesses, to widen the selection of items available at this twice annual event presented by the Downtown Arlington Business Association.

“The vendors are down, but the sun is shining,” said organizer Taunya Sanchez.
