The River Hebert Home and School Associations annual Spring Fair offers double the fun.

Not only do the families in the community get a chance to spend time and have fun together, but also the events proceeds are split up among the classes at River Hebert District Elementary School to fund class trips.

The River Hebert Home and School Associations annual Spring Fair offers double the fun.

Not only do the families in the community get a chance to spend time and have fun together, but also the events proceeds are split up among the classes at River Hebert District Elementary School to fund class trips.

The event at the school this past weekend included a yard sale, silent auction, mock jail, barbecue, cakewalk, balloon darts, ice cream parlour, fish pond, horse and wagon rides, bake sale, craft sale, putting green, face-painting and draws for lobster and a trampoline.

Official numbers werent available at publication time, but it is expected that the money raised exceeded last years $2,000 mark.

Each class has a month where they can fundraise for their class trip, but this is the major fundraiser, said Angie Fagan, president of the association.

She said the community is very supportive of the event.

Its a really fun day, she said. I think River Hebert is a very supportive community and everything they do goes over well but where this is for the kids, it gets parents and grandparents, into the school and gives them a chance to see what the kids are doing.

Grade 5 student Tyler Thomas said he loves to participate in the spring fair every year.

I get to paint peoples faces, buy stuff, put people in jail he said. Ever since Ive been in this school weve always had a spring fair and its always been the best.
