Did You Eat Your Veggies at Sprig?

How many of you ate your veggies at Sprig? A big thank you to local eatery Sprig Restaurant and Bar for hosting our Tuesday Night Bites event this week. We LOVED their veggie taste test idea for the kids! The kids were given a plate of th ree seasonal veggies (brussels sprouts, beets, or swiss chard) to taste. The rules: You have to taste (and swallow) each of the veggies. Then, Sprig provided each child with a sheet for them to a) check that they tasted the vegetable, b) specify whether or not they liked each one, and c) Draw their favorite of the three. All children who completed the taste test received a free ice cream for dessert. The kids LOVED it. And they ate their veggies!

Eagles Trek, Evansdale Soars

Pleasant surprises, especially those that cause you to pause, reflect, and smile because they’ve warmed your heart, are some of the best experiences life has to offer. That’s how we feel about Eagle Trek. Now that its evolution from concept to reality is complete. Now that we can bask in the light of its pleasant surprise, our hearts are warmed. From the earliest days, when Eagle Trek was still a concept being researched and deliberated, we knew we had an opportunity to partner with the PTA to do more with less. To raise more money and increase family and student participation, while spending less through a single fundraiser. However, that voice of caution, that conservative thread that runs through any organization that takes their fiscal responsibility seriously, made us a little nervous. Read more
