Sunny skies for local swap

Maxine's Annual Plant & Book Swap on Sunday, June 6th, attracted a wide variety of people, plants, snacks, books, and garden hats and helmets.

"Thank you to everyone for participating and I look forward to doing it again next year!" says Maxine Skuba, pictured in her green flowered hat and grateful for the cooperative weather following a steady and swap-unfriendly downpour.

Local author and swap participant Cheryl Meyer was thrilled to see her 2001 book, "Mothers Who Kill Their Children" on Skuba's used book table and happily signed it for an appreciative new owner. In a festive red hat and scarf on loan from the hostess, that's me sampling a tasty (and theme-appropriate) dandelion wine that was brought by another guest.

"Everybody went away happy," said Skuba of the event. A truckload of leftover books is being donated to the Planned Parenthood Annual Book Sale.
