You might even want to buy one or two of them! White Elephants, that is. They will be only a small part of the many wonderful items to browse over at the Tujunga United Methodist Church Annual Harvest Festival being held on the church grounds from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21. Besides the giant yard sale in the parking lot and the white elephants there will be a jewelry booth, baked goods, assorted jams and fruit preserves, miscellaneous clothing, toys, electrical and household items, plus a delicious outdoor barbecue luncheon. Come out early and bring the entire family to this exciting once-a-year event.            More information is available by calling the church office at (818) 473-4185 or emailing Tujunga United Methodist Church (TUMC) is located at 9901 Tujunga Canyon Blvd (near Foothill Blvd) in Tujunga.
