2019 East Tennessee Spring Fling Update

On Saturday, May 11, Shady Grove Methodist Church hosted its eighth Access-Life East Tennessee Outpost “Spring Fling”. The theme for this year’s event was “Celebrating Birthdays” complete with balloons, birthday cake, and ice cream to honor the 80th birthday of key volunteer, Barbara Suttles.

The annual “Spring Fling” is a recreational opportunity for individuals with special challenges and their family members  to experience fun activities in a safe and loving environment.

After playing a variety of games (bowling, Connect4, BINGO, and custom-made games), the participants enjoyed crafts including decorating mini-tote bags, making a take-home flower pot arrangement, and making a caterpillar on a leaf. Easel painting was a big hit, too. The Sunshine Ambassadors entertained with their dance routines and everyone enjoyed group singing.

All in all there were twenty-three participants, twenty-four family members, and twenty-eight volunteers making this another God blessed success!
