The Spring Fling is an event you don’t want to miss.
It was a great success last year and fun for all.
Everyone in the neighborhood is invited.
New neighbors are encouraged to attend for a great
chance to meet old-timers and not-so-old-timers.
We have activities planned for all ages, including:
COVNA will provide light snacks, finger food and beverages.
Please feel free to bring your favorite sides & desserts to share. Bring seating.
A gift card will be awarded to the winner of the pie contest.
Bring your famous pie to the party for a chance at the title
“Best Baker in Castlewood Forest-Oak Valley.”
Laura Tabony will not enter this year.
