SEAS Spring Fling: SEAS School is in need of a new playground structure, as the current one is tired and broken down. It has served students of SEAS School for over 20 years, and has certainly seen better days. KDWA's Barb Massman has donated two beautifully handcrafted quilts to help SEAS School raise money to purchase a new playground. One quilt is a colorful stained-glass pattern, and the other is a cute, children's themed quilt. Raffle tickets are being sold for $10 per ticket, and are being sold at SEAS Church after Masses as well as in the church office during the week. Tickets can also be bought at SEAS School, and KDWA Radio. All proceeds will go directly to the playground fund. The winners of the quilt raffle will be drawn on Friday, April 24th at the SEAS Spring Fling event. This year's Spring Fling theme is "Let's Luau." New this year, they will be serving hearty appetizers rather than hosting a sit-down dinner. Also new this year, they will end the evening with DJ music and dance. For more information, you can call SEAS School at 651-437-3098. This event is open to everyone.
