The clocks have sprung ahead and despite Old Man Winter’s little game of chicken with those famous February groundhogs this means Spring is just around the corner. To celebrate the longer, and hopefully warmer, days of the Spring Solstice, École Sam Livingston School Council is delighted to be bringing back our massive Business Expo and Craft Fair!
Last year’s relaunch was such a terrific success we thought we’d move it from the busy late fall to the springtime, where our events calendar is a bit less crowded. With Easter, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day coming soon Sam’s Spring Fling/Salon D’art seemed a perfect fit!
Our Craft Workshop and Spring Market Showcase will take place on
Saturday, April 8, 2017 from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm
at École Sam Livingston School (12011 Bonaventure Drive SE)
Once again we will be using Healthy Hunger to pre-order tickets for all crafts and the theatre performance. Tickets will be available at the door but we strongly suggest pre-ordering so that we can ensure enough supplies are available for everyone (this cannot be guaranteed for those ordering crafts at the door).
Our fantastic volunteers have tonnes of fun packed into four hours! There is our Craft Workshop with upcycled crafts (see below), the Spring Market Showcase featuring local small businesses, young entrepeneurs, one-of-a-kind crafts, face painting, portraits, and photography, a free Envirolab Workshop teaching about seeds and vermicomposting including a look at some red wigglers under a microscope, a Theatre Performance consisting of a 50 minute interactive show called Akai and Momoo’s Ocean Adventure, a Silent Auction featuring student artwork, Food Trucks by Dumpling Hero and Happy Food Trucks, Marble Slab Ice Cream, and, of course, our “world” famous Sam Livingston Popcorn.
The Theatre Performance is something new for this year and we’re quite excited about it. We hope you will enjoy it. Click this link for additional information about this play. Pricing is $3 for adults and $2 for children. Again, tickets for this performance can be pre-ordered using Healthy Hunger or purchased at the door.
As always, our fabulous crafting guru has come up with another slate of wonderful crafts suitable for young and old to create, to give, and to receive. Have a look at these!
Pen/Pencil Holder $6
Flower Pot with Bulbs $8
What a great way to welcome Spring! We hope to see you at Sam’s Spring Fling / Salon D’art on Saturday, April 8th. And remember, this event is not only open to Sam students and families, but all your friends and neighbours too! This is our way of welcoming and thanking those communities in which we live and especially the community in which our children go to school.
