FAIRVIEW – The Fairview Lions Club held their first (of what they hope will be the annual) Spring Fling this weekend at Fairview Community Park. More than 500 people attended the event, despite having to compete with spring break and various other activities.

President of the Fairview Lions Club, William Criscoe, and his team of more than 30 volunteers made the event a success. Alongside the Lions Club sponsored food and games were vendors, exhibits and other activities for those in attendance to enjoy, including an AirEvac Lifeteam helicopter, representatives from the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office, free health screenings and the North Alabama Agriplex, just to name a few.

Lions spokeswoman Stephanie Giancatarino said, “This Spring Fling is just another way we can also reach out to the community and let them know we are here. We want to help in whatever ways we can. This last year we have really hoped to branch out further and do some more fun things in the community to bring others together for some good, clean family fun. We did the movie in the park at Halloween and the Christmas tree parade with the tree lighting, both of which will be happening again this year. We are looking to offer opportunities throughout the entire year.”

Other events that the organization will sponsor this year include a Back-to-School Bash and a Labor Day parade.

All proceeds from the event’s Lions Club sponsored food sales and games will go toward the organization’s Community Project Fund.
