Hi there and welcome everyone!! As you can see we are keeping extremely busy at the Historical Association of Princeville or HAP!! Earlier this April we hosted the annual 5K School House Run/Walk and our first annual Spring Festival. Many came out to run and walk the 5K and had a great time. We had runners and walkers of all ages (young, younger, and youngest ;) and everyone finished well!
*
The HAP also put out a beautiful spread of fruits, cookies, water, and coffee for the runners and other guests attending. It was a bit breezy but we had been waiting on the sunshine for so long that we didn't mind the cool breeze.
*
The run/walk event started at 9 a.m. with the Spring Festival activities beginning around 10 a.m. The Easter Bunny and Ricky Racoon also made an appearance and had fun with all of our guests. Kathy Messersmith (our President) was kind enough to provide face painting for anyone who wanted it, there were Easter Egg pages to color and glitter, flowers to plant, an Easter Egg hunt, and finally Easter book story time. Rosie Siebenthal read some cute books about Easter and Spring to a very well behaved audience. The stories were enjoyed by all!
*
Many of you may have noticed Rosie Siebenthal with her camera taking (lots!) of pictures of the various events. There are two groups of images (those with adults and those with kids) and they are located in separate galleries on Rosie's business shopping cart. You may access the images to view and purchase at special HAP pricing with proceeds going to the HAP.
