Winlaw school plans Spring Fling

Winlaw Elementary students are bursting with excitement, planning and preparing for the school’s annual Spring Fling Fundraiser. This important community event is happening at the school on Saturday, May 23, 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 help fund the quality educational programs, services and resources, including field trips, arts, music and reading programs in the classroom for the 2015-16 school year. Previous programs funded include bussing for the ski and swim programs, artists in the classroom, zumba workshops and more.

Local artists and vendors wishing to participate can contact Tanya Wright at 250-226-7050

Event highlights will include:

• The ever-popular plant table, thanks to the generous donations of plant starts from the many incredible gardeners in our valley. If you haven’t finished putting your garden in this year, come check out this amazing selection.

• Raffle mania! Raffle tickets will be available for a paddle board kayak, a fancy cake, and gardening manure.

• Penny Auction featuring new and gently used toys and children’s books for kids to bid on.

• Legendary Meats sausages on the barbecue and serving locally roasted coffee.

Come rain or shine!
