April 27 is just around the corner and organizers of Eagle View School’s annual Fun Fair is gearing up to be the best ever.

“The funds raised go into the PAC which helps pay for the breakfast club program, helps pay for field trips, and the big thing is the playground,” said Leigh Deans.

“We’ve been fund raising for the past couple of years for a new playground, which is happening soon,” she said.

“They should be starting anytime to take out the old playground to make way for the new one which will be completely installed by May.”

This year’s fun fair boasts a Wii room, food, face-painting, a crafts table and a bean bag toss.

“You know,” said Deans, “fun fair games.

“We have our main money maker called the Instant Win, loaded with tons of prizes.”

There is no admission fee, but everything — including food — takes tickets to purchase.

“The tickets cost 50 cents each, but you get extra tickets in the $10 and $20 books,” said Deans.

Having said that, the school could use more donated goods to use as prizes, she said.

“We are looking pretty good for donations, but we’re not quite there yet,” said Deans.

Folks who’d care to contribute can drop donations off at the school or they can drop items off with Deans at Scotiabank.

The Fun Fair takes place at Eagle View School, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
