Spring Fair News
The Spring Fair is coming! Plan on attending this year's spring fair on Saturday, May 4th, from 10 am to 3:30 pm for a time of gathering in community and having springtime fun. Come to enjoy a day of meeting and greeting friends, sharing a picnic together (bring your own or purchase from the fair cafe) and enjoying the beauty of the valley. Maypole dances will be performed by the grade students of Hawthorne Valley School, followed by games and activities for children in the afternoon. If you would like to help the spring fair effort in any way, we welcome hearing from you! Your participation is greatly appreciated.
The following activities have been selected for this year and each will welcome a vibrant crew of volunteers to set up, oversee the activity and clean up:
Kindergarten Treasure Yard – Kindergarten
Obstacle Course – 1st Grade
Banana Pole – 2nd Grade
Zip Line – 3rd Grade
Boat Races – 4th Grade
Dragon Run – 5th Grade
Hay Jump – 6th Grade
Pillow Joust – 7th Grade
Additional Craft activities, projects and games are welcome (we are still looking for crafts/activities that will be interesting for kids in middle school and up). Community members and alumni who wish to coordinate an activity are welcome, please email fair coordinator Christianna Abel with proposals no later than April 15th, or phone 413-687-0529.
We are looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you at the fair!
