The De Soto Baptist Church's annual yard sale will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the home of Dorothy Nalley, 33695 W. 83rd St., De Soto. It was decided to extend the sale because of the citywide garage sale.
We had lots of donations this year and there are still some good bargains. Items include records, books, electric appliances, shoes, clothes of all sizes, dishes, stuffed toys and cosmetics.
¢
Several fitness classes are offered through De Soto Parks and Recreation. The classes are designed for all ages and all fitness levels from low intensity fitness to aerobics, toning and yoga.
Classes are from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and yoga classes are from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursdays. All classes take place at the De Soto Community Center.
