On May 12, after weeks of preparation, clubs, performers, and Student Council hosted Strath Haven’s annual Spring Fling just outside the middle school. 

Students enjoyed a multitude of activities present at Spring Fling, including many musical performances ranging from a saxophone quartet to a cover of Carrie Underwood’s ‘Before He Cheats’, captivating the attention of everyone attending. 

“I really enjoyed performing,” sophomore Josie Tolson said. “A lot of my friends were there, so I wasn’t too nervous, and I think it’s fun to watch everyone else’s performance and be able to share your own.”

Tolson sang ‘Ceilings’ by Lizzy McAlpine with her friend junior Brianne Caldwell, which they had also performed together during Coffeehouse. 

“We decided to work together again because people seemed to like it,” Tolson said. 

While the music was a large part of the event, various clubs ran booths that people could support lined along the parking lot. Clubs offered commissioned art, sold baked goods, and promoted membership. The hot afternoon encouraged the sales of cooling refreshments like lemonade sold by Mini-Thon, and created lines at the Konda Ice truck.

The event saw the return of stations, like the dunk tank, and new ones like the “pie your teachers” table, sponsored by SHHS Doctors Without Borders. 

Many clubs, like Doctors without Borders, used Spring Fling as an opportunity to raise money for a charity. 

Other activities were offered simply for attendees to enjoy, such as the obstacle course, cornhole, face painting, and drawing people as fish.

“I was in charge of the art club stand and we did face painting, glitter tattoos, and art trivia,” sophomore Luci DiBonaventura said. 

DiBonaventura enjoyed the atmosphere of the event and said she would want to partake in the activities again next year. 

“I think my favorite part of Spring Fling was helping with the community, and making other people have fun. I really enjoy doing events like this,” DiBonaventura said.
