merriman park elementary

This year, the Merriman Park Elementary School PTA fall fundraiser will go beyond benefitting Merriman Park students.

In addition to hosting a day of family fun and food trucks at the campus from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., this Saturday, Oct. 4, the PTA is helping the environment too by inviting community members to donate unwanted goods — from busted electronics to musical instruments — for a community recycling event. Plus, each family that contributes will be entered into a raffle to win $100 worth of groceries. Similar recycling events at other schools have raised thousands of dollars.
