Spring Fling: May 6, 2017

Family fun abounds this Saturday, May 6, at PS3’s annual FUNraiser Spring Fling! Please join us from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for bouncy castles, face painting, the Haunted Glenn, amazing food and desserts, Live music with Replay Studios, karaoke, a kid’s book sale, awesome activities at the Art Table, Garden Table, PS3Til6 Table, The Windinator, Mathnasium, Curated Care, MakerState and more! Wristbands for kids are $10 and are on sale every morning in the lobby or at the event. Grown ups are free. It takes more than 30 people per shift to make it a success, so please help out!

 How can I help at the Fling?

* Sign up to help with set-up (Friday night, 6-9 p.m.) or with one of the events during the day on Saturday–any time you can give is helpful! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4ca9a722a4f58-spring1

* Make a dessert! Our dessert table is a hub of activity. Make a homemade treat or purchase one and bring it to the kitchen on Friday, May 5 at pick-up, or drop it off when you get to the Fling.

* Think of the Fling while you Spring Clean: we need children’s and parenting books for our Book Table. Also, small kid toys for our Pocket Lady and bigger items like new craft sets, coloring books, larger toys, etc. for our Wheel of Fortune game. Look for the Spring Fling Box in the lobby and drop it in.
