Hope School Spring Fling this weekend

By Lyndsie Kiebert

‘Tis the season of plant sales, yard sales and bake sales. The only thing that could make these spring traditions better is combining them all into one event, and for it to benefit a local school. Luckily, you can take part in such an event this weekend.

Head to Hope School Saturday, May 19, to take part in the 7th annual Spring Fling from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is put on by Hope School’s Partners in Education (PIE) group.

For plants, there will be annuals, perennials,  flowers and vegetables — some donated by local farmers and some planted by Hope students. There will also be activities for kids, including a “bike rodeo.” Kids bring their own bikes and go through a series of bike safety lessons.

“The staff and parents of Hope School divide and conquer to put on this big event,” said PIE president and Kindergarten teacher Jenny Shelton. “There is a ton of community support through yard sale donations, plant donations, home-baked goods (and) local artists painting faces and helping with kids crafts.”
