Winlaw elementary hosts its annual Spring Fling on May 24.

Winlaw elementary students are bursting with excitement, planning and preparing for the school’s annual Spring Fling fundraiser.

This community event is happening at the school on Saturday,  May 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature a barbecue and bake sale, kids games, face painting, an auction, various raffles and a plant and craft sale.

Don’t miss the opportunity to bid on a number of fantastic auction items, generously donated by our community artisans and local businesses.

Proceeds raised will help fund the quality educational programs, services and resources, including field trips, arts, music and reading programs in the classroom for the 2014-15 school year.

Previous programs funded include bussing for the ski and swim programs, artists in the classroom, drumming workshops and more.

Event Highlights will include a craft and plant table, featuring ceramic bird baths, soap and plant starts made by Grade 4-6 students wishing to raise funds specifically for their class excursion to Pines Camp in June; Raffle Mania where tickets will be available for a kayak, a fancy cake, and gardening manure.

A penny auction featuring new and gently used toys and children’s books for kids to bid on.

We’ll be cooking up Legendary Meats sausages on the barbecue  and serving locally roasted coffee.

Call for Vendors

Any local artists and vendors wishing to participate in the event can contact Kim Sparks at 250-355-2659 or kimsparks(at)
