The Town Council has again approved a Prairie Days community picnic on Saturday, August 27 from 2:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. This year’s event is shaking out to be even better than last year! The daffodil Princesses will be there, we have amazing prizes from places like the Tacoma Art Museum, King County Fair, the Puyallup Fair, Maris Farms, Wild Waves, Museum of flight, just to name a few.

We are in the planning stages and wanted to put the word out. We are also looking for volunteers to assist with various games and activities. If you are interested in volunteering, you can access the survey regarding the event by using the scan code provided in your newsletter or at https://forms.office.com/r/JwjWK6Tu1q. It will ask you what you want to do as a volunteer and other questions to aid us in finding a few volunteers.

Cash donations are happily accepted. We encourage Town businesses to find creative ways to get involved. Last year, businesses and community members donated goods and services that can be game prizes and give-away items for the event or even items we can add to the kids’ goodie bag. Some also donated cash, which paid for things like the balloon twister and band. If you wish to support this awesome event, we’d love to hear from you sooner than later. Knowing how you plan to support the event will help us get our ducks in a row. 

A big thank you Murrey’s Disposal, Honey Bucket, Coast Exteriors and Carports of Washington for already donating to this year’s event!! If you are interested in supporting our 2nd Annual Prairie Days, please contact Meag at Town Hall via email at clerk2@townofsp.com or phone at 360-897-8878.

We are excited to spend time with our neighbors, enjoy some music, grab a bite and/or a beer from a local food vendor/truck, play some games, meet your Town officials and just enjoy this wonderful little community together. This year we will have a DJ early in the day followed by the band for the last few hours. More details will be provided in your newsletters each month. STAY TUNED!!
