One of the MLNA’s two annual social events, Spring Fling brings neighbors together on a Saturday morning in early March. The 2017 Spring Fling is on Saturday, March 4. At the March 5, 2016, event, Jim Cochran took these photos.

At the 2016 get-together neighbors were able to:

  • Chat with old friends and meet new neighbors.
  • Enjoy free baked goods, hot cider or chocolate, and Starbucks coffee.
  • Buy some books at the PTA’s used-book sale on the stage.
  • Learn about emergency preparedness from members of our CERT (Community Emergency Response Team).
  • Help Brownie and Daisy Scouts collect pet-care items for the Humane Society.
  • Learn about our city’s initiatives and projects, and opportunities to express our voices.
  • Visit the Neighborhood Watch/Police Department table for crime-prevention tips and info about the MVPD’s social-media outlets.
  • Learn about best tree choices from Mountain View Trees.
  • Donate small stuffed animals to Animals Beacons of Light.
  • See more of Monta Loma’s history at the Monta Loma History display.
  • Learn about the city’s mediation program.
  • Buy a Monta Loma tee shirt.
  • Engage in a craft project with their kids.
  • Meet Pearl and Jerry’s puppets.

Our event on March 7, 2015, was also huge success. Jim Cochran took photos of that one, too.
