Spring Fling Fundraising – Huge Success!

If you let the rainy weather scare you away, you missed a great time on Sunday when the DeafBlind Camp of Maryland hosted the Spring Fling. Over one- hundred and fifty people came out for a fun afternoon.

Since the skies were pouring in the morning, the committee decided to move all activities inside. Fortunately, our partners at West River Methodist Camping Center had two wonderful buildings to host this event, so everything fit nicely indoors.

Kids of all ages delighted in making crafts and playing carnival games like ring toss, marble grab, and Skee ball. There was a talented balloon animal maker, and two terrific face painters. One guest in her 80s said she had never had her face painted, so she got two lovely hearts painted on her cheek.

A crowd favorite was the four legged friends from Canine Companions. These furry fellows were more than happy to frolic with everyone on the floor.

The second building housed a pay-what- you-want book sale, with hundreds of books for the taking. This room also had games like Giant Jenga and Connect Four, and an exciting BINGO game with prizes occurred in the afternoon.

Food was served throughout the day. Our food angels made sure that food was hot and available throughout the event. Everyone was thrilled with the quality and variety of the meal.

Since the rain stopped by afternoon, many people went canoeing. One man, Paul, said this brought back memories of his days as a boy scout. He was out on the water a really long time.

The highlight of the day was a special performance by the choir from Christ Deaf

United Methodist Church. Their Signed interpretation of hymns brought many to tears. Thanks to the wonderful interpreters, Deaf, DeafBlind, and hearing guests were able to enjoy the performance equally.

The day concluded with Scott Stoffel choosing the raffle winner. Yvonne Tuttle was the lucky winner of the 50/50 raffle. Congratulations Yvonne. It takes a lot of people to make an event like this run smoothly, and there are too many to name here. But please, check out here for a full list of people who sponsored games and activities. Without all of our friends, the Spring Fling could not have happened.

Thank you from the Spring Fling Planning Committee
