Handbell tables to be given away! 


Peery Table

Not a picture of the actual tables

     Central United Protestant Church in Richland, WA has ten Peery handbell tables they are no longer using and want to give them away! They are 6' tables, trapezoid shape, and the sides fold down so they are shorter for storage. They are not in perfect condition but are definitely usable. There are some tears in the fabric that covers the padding that could stand to be repaired. They have all the brackets; one of the heavy plastic music stands is broken but it still works. Contact Lori Stevens, Finance Associate, Central Church, 1124 Stevens Dr, Richland, WA, 99354. 509-943-1143, ext. 16;
