The Wood River Woman's Club holds it annual Trash to Treasure Sale on Saturday, and will raise money to help fund a number of charitable efforts in the River Bend. If you have items to donate to the sale, you can drop those off today at the Wood River Round House. The sale is tomorrow from 8am to 2pm.

Club co-president Helen Crause says the groups history goes back to 1906, although it wasn't officially recognized until ten years later. Crause says the current members are always willing to give when they can:

Items being accepted between 10am and 4pm today include children and adult clothing, toys, furniture, books, and art work. The group funds scholarships for students attending East Alton Wood River, Roxana and Civic Memorial High Schools, along with the return of an Ice Cream Social later this summer.
