Wow! What an incredible turnout and event we had at last weekend’s Spring Festival! 500 attendees enjoyed egg hunting, two bounce houses, character mascots, facepainting, balloon animals, hot dogs, fresh fruit cups and cookies, a Safety Fair with a fire truck and police K-9 unit, and arts and crafts.
Mega popular events like this one don’t happen magically – they only happen due to the hard work of our community’s volunteers. First and foremost, Board member Donna Glover, chair of the Activities Committee spent many, many hours planning, preparing, and overseeing this event. A huge thanks to her for pulling this off without a hitch.
In addition to Donna, we had several people step up and volunteer their time to assist with setup, registration, playing mascot characters, and cleaning up. Unfortunately we had to seriously consider cancelling this event due to a lack of volunteers until ten days before it was set to occur. With hundreds of people enjoying this event, getting volunteers shouldn’t be so difficult – just one hour of your time makes a big difference.
At the end of February, the final tweaks were made to the sunshades over the Main Playground. The rainy season made the final installation a challenge, but thanks to Board Member Rich Ellenson and General Manager Pat Magee diligently working with the vendor, the beautiful shades are ready for all to enjoy. The shades stop 98% of all UV rays and withstand winds up to 80 miles per hour.
