Spring Fling

One of the MLNA’s two annual social events, Spring Fling brings neighbors together on a Saturday morning in early March. The next event will be on Saturday, March 3, 2018. The 2017 event was our largest ever, with over 200 attendees. Jim Cochran took these photos.

At the March 4, 2017, 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 the members of our CERT (Community Emergency Response Team).
  • Chat with Mayor Ken Rosenberg and city council members Lisa Matichak and John McAlister.
  • Donate small stuffed animals to Animals Beacons of Light.
  • Ask our Brownie and Daisy Girl Scouts what they’ve learned about water.
  • Learn about our city from members of its Community Outreach team and recycling program.
  • Visit the Neighborhood Watch/Police Department table for crime-prevention tips and info about the MVPD’s social-media outlets.
  • Consult members of Mountain View Trees about your tree questions.
  • Learn about the city’s mediation program.

  • Support programs that benefit students at all MVWSD schools by buying raffle tickets for the Mountain View Educational Foundation‘s annual fundraiser gala.
