All your pertinent details.

The Class of 2018 is getting creative.

As Coupeville’s newest seniors kick into gear to raise funds for their graduation party, they have two events planned for July 1.

First up is a rummage sale at the Coupeville Rec Hall from 9 AM-3 PM, then the Wolves will flip around and offer “date night” babysitting services at the same location from 6-9 PM.

CHS seniors will provide games, activities, art projects, movement, and a movie corner for kids.

Children must be potty-trained to participate.

Cost is $10 for one child, $20 for two, with a max family rate of $25.

Registration for the “date night” services will take place during the garage sale.

For those who don’t know, the Rec Hall is at 901 NW Alexander St., within easy walking distance of a ton of restaurants for parents who choose to incorporate that into their free time.

Christopher’s on Whidbey, The Oystercatcher, The Front Street Grill and Toby’s Tavern are all close enough to hit with your shoe from the Rec Hall parking lot (if you were to throw a shoe…).

Or head home and just enjoy the silence.

However you use the “date night” services or the garage sale, your money will go to help the Class of 2018 fund a “safe, sober (and awesome) Senior Trip next spring.

As CHS athletic stars Allison Wenzel and Taichen Rose let loose with their air horns Saturday morning, a great wave of humanity crashed down on Coupeville Elementary School.

The event?

The 37th annual Coupeville Lions Garage Sale, where bargains stretch out as far as the eye can see, and you just need to be quick (and sharp-elbowed) to get to that elusive trash-turned-treasure first.

Throwing all personal safety to the wind, wanderin’ photo man John Fisken waded ashore, cameras blazing in a one-man bid to capture the event.

We’re not sure he made it back out alive, but, at the very least, his photos did.

Bargains, bargains as far as the eye can see.

Tomorrow is D-Day.

The Coupeville Lions 37th annual garage sale extravaganza takes over S. Main St. this weekend.

That means two days of mass hordes of people descending on Coupeville Elementary School in pursuit of bargains.

The sale, which is the biggest fundraiser for the organization, is built on year-round donations.

Doors open Saturday from 9 AM-4 PM, then day two unfolds Sunday 9-1.

The photos above, which showcase just a bit of the massive amount of goodies waiting to be plundered, come to us courtesy wanderin’ photo man John Fisken.
