A full day of fun has been planned in Pillager on April 6 and you won’t want to miss it. The Pillager Education Foundation is planning the 1st annual Spring Fling starting with an art show and craft and vendor fair in the morning. From 11-6 there will be a gym full of events for kids including a large obstacle course, dunk tank, climbing wall, games, and more! A 3-on-3 BB tournament starts at 9:00, and the Musical performance of Grease, begins at 2. The evening is filled with a staff BB competition, and alumni BB with Just for Kix performing at ½ times and between games. A BBQ cook-off begins at 5 with judging and awards at 7. Also featured through the evening will be workshops and presentations by WalleyeDan, Chris Foley, the In-Fisherman, the Pottery Wheel, and others. Choirs from Little Falls, Staples, and Motley will each present a ½ hour concert in our new commons beginning at 6:30.
A Silent Auction will be open all day and a Live Auction will close the evening at 8:00. Thousands of dollars of items will be available for bid including an April 15 Timberwolves Skybox for 22, Dinner by Tom Kavanaugh for 6, overnight stay at Grand Casino, and many, many smaller prizes.
Five dollars gets you in the door and access to most of the events. Your entrance ticket also serves as your ticket for the prize drawings throughout the evening. This event is a fundraiser for the Pillager Education Foundation and Dollars for Scholars. Proceeds will benefit Pillager students with scholarships and funding for innovative classrooms and special projects. For more information or to be involved contact Sue Van Hal at (218) 746-2105.
