I Love Lake Forest Day includes free rides, games

FELTON — Students and faculty alike are easily a month into the new school year and the district wants to help rev up excitement.

The eighth annual I love Lake Forest Day will take place Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lake Forest High School and Central Business Office campus in Felton.

“We are hoping to see all our Lake Forest families and community members participate in this event,” Superintendent Dr. Brenda G. Wynder said. “It will be an opportunity for them to view various programs offered in Lake Forest School District schools as well as network with various vendors in the area and spend time with families and friends from all of our Lake Forest communities.”

Vendors and food stations will be on hand for a variety of purchases, but everything else will be free, she added.

Vendors and curriculum displays will be found in the high school hallways and atrium while food stations will be appropriately placed in the high school cafeteria.

Hay and pony rides will be offered throughout the day at the agriculture buildings.

The front lawn of the high school will host helicopter exhibitions and the district office parking lot will have various displays and demonstrations from community police and fire departments along with a bouncy house and games.

The parking lot by the high school’s pool entrance will play host to more vendors with food and clothing for purchase.

Entertainment is planned to include performances by all six school chorus programs in the auditorium with various Spartan athletic teams organizing activities in the gym all day.

As an added bonus: the recently renovated high school pool will be open for swimming at no charge, Dr. Wynder said.

“Each year, we have built from a strong, entertaining assembly of organizations and continue to include new and different vendors and activities from our families and community members to enjoy,” she said.

One such new program, high schoolers from the ProStart/FCCLA, will offer demonstrations and taste-tests. Students involved in this program are currently training with some of the best local restaurant chefs, according to Dr. Wynder.

“We look forward to seeing the students and their families participate and interact with other Spartan families. Many students and families show up excited and stay for the entire day,” she said. “It is always great to have opportunities to showcase Lake Forest clubs, athletes and curriculum. We are confident this year’s I Love Lake Forest Day will be another huge success. It is GREAT to be a SPARTAN!”
