Florence will host its annual Spring Fling Saturday, April 28 in the Florence gym at the intersection of Seventh and Dean streets.
This event is a fundraiser for the city’s Labor Day celebration, which will observe its 75th anniversary in 2012.
A “One Minute to Win It!” competition, a crowd favorite last year, will be repeated this year. Competition is split between two age groups: 7 through 15 and 16 to adult. It will feature games and contest.
First place in the 7-15 age class wins $50; in the 16-adult age class, $100. Entry forms are available at Cottonwood Valley Bank in Marion and the Marion County Record in Marion.
Kids’ games begin at 3 p.m., featuring Plinko, wheel games, bean-bag toss, duck pond, bulls eye, mini basketball and a moon walk.
A Mexican meal will be served at 5 p.m. by donation. A dessert auction will follow the meal featuring desserts and tickets to Wichita State University athletic events, Kansas City Royals games, Wichita Thunder games and Wichita Wild games.
Participants will have a chance to win a WSU autographed team ball, University of Kansas autographed team ball, Kansas State University football autographed by coach Bill Snyder, University of Kansas football autographed by coach Charlie Weis and a Kindle Fire.
