Washington College Academy plans yoga fundraiser to benefit Ukrainian refugees | Sunday Stories

LIMESTONE — Washington College Academy will continue its tradition of providing new learning opportunities to the public and preserving the classics with a full slate of offerings in coming weeks.

In addition to the classes exploring traditional and non-traditional arts, there’ll be a number of special events on the historic college campus.

A WCA Yoga Fundraiser benefiting Ukrainian refugees in Hungary will be held April 24 at 4 p.m. Instructor Lena McNeese will lead the donation-based yoga class, from which all proceeds go to help refugees in a program with a local connection. To learn more or to sign up, call 423-257-5151 or visit

A community yard sale will be held on April 29 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sellers can arrive at 6:30 a.m. to set up. The fee is $10 cash for a spot. Vendors must provide their own tables. WCA is cleaning out its closets as well. Anyone who’d prefer to donate non-clothing items for the academy’s benefit can drop them off April 25-26 from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Call 423-502-0608 for information or to schedule a drop-off.
