Spring Fling scheduled for April 6

Pella — Join in the fun on Saturday, April 6 at the Vermeer Global Pavilion. Your family and friends will not want to miss all the exciting things happening at the Pella Christian Grade School Spring Fling 2013!  Come enjoy a night of good food, fellowship, and fundraising for the school!

Organizers are excited to bring Peter Nestler, World Champion Rope Jumper, as our exciting entertainment for the evening.  Peter just set a record for most skips on a unicycle in one minute!   How many successful skips did he complete in that minute? Come and find out. Peter engages audiences of all ages with his mastery of rope skipping, unicycling, use of glow in the dark ropes, audience participation and motivational speaking!  Check out his website at

The evening will also include dinner catered by Country Catering, exciting Class Prize Drawings, a wide variety of gift certificates available to purchase from our local businesses, and a live auction.  Some of our live auction items this year include a vacation stay in the Ozarks, Newton and Knoxville Raceway experiences, a gun/document safe, a Weber grill, and Park Hopper passes to Disney World!

We would like to say a huge thank you to a few of our wonderful sponsors, Larry and Rosie De Vries, the Vermeer Charitable Foundation, LDJ Manufacturing, and Work Systems Rehab and Fitness for their generous financial support in making this evening possible.
