On Saturday, April 27th, Sixty three volunteers and countless CPC families converged on the Lockmar Spring Fling. For the third year, our congregation has assisted our local public elementary school in throwing its annual spring student celebration. Our sixty three volunteers assisted with: supervising the six bounce houses, helping with the teacher-led games, cooking and serving over 500 hot dogs, preparing 300 prepared meals, and serving over 700 drinks!
Norma Hostetler, Lockmar’s principal, said of the event, “The teachers, students, and parents thought the event was well attended and the students had a great time. We could not have covered bounce houses and food with the limited number of volunteers that we had. Your church volunteers and the bounce houses made the event a huge success.”
I would like to send a HUGE thank you to all the families who came to spend time with their neighbors and the many volunteers who sacrificed at least an hour of their time to make this event a “huge success”. If you would like more information about how you can assist in helping with our ministry to our local schools, please go to our church’s website under the Adopt-a-school ministry page (linked below).
