Spring Dance: 500 People Sharing A Happy Evening Together
Five hundred people – probably the most ever at a Meher Schools event – gathered on the playground Saturday for an evening of music, dancing, food, and fun. Our Spring Dance was our first community-wide event since the onset of the pandemic.
From preschoolers to grandparents, people seemed to enjoy just being out with others after two years of COVID isolation. DJ and alumni dad Tion Torrence spun a carefully curated selection of tunes to keep the tempo lively and upbeat. There was plenty of food from the two food trucks. (The desserts lasted longer than they would have if a mom hadn’t intercepted a boy who had filled his pockets with chocolate chip cookies.)
A fundraiser for school projects, the silent auction raised more than $4100! The 20 items donated ranged from a three-night stay at a home in the Sierra foothills ($650) to two pints of homemade ice cream ($50).
Thank you to our tireless Parents Steering Committee, which organized the event, to the volunteers who pitched in to help, to those who donated and bid on items in the silent auction, and to everyone who showed up to share in our celebration of the season.
