Spring Into Action event lets you see what’s happening in our communities

Home-based businesses, community groups, the softball association, and more will be on hand.

Spring is almost here, which means that it is once more time to “Spring Into Action” on March 17. The event provides an opportunity for local residents who run a home-based business or service, local crafters, and non-profit and community groups to showcase what they have to offer, and gives residents a chance to see what is going on, and coming up, in the area, including the return of softball via the Cache Creek Softball Association.

This year’s sixth annual event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cache Creek Community Hall, and vendors will be on hand, as well as a concession run by the Cache Creek Elementary School Parent Advisory Council. The event usually attracts close to three dozen exhibitors and vendors, with something to suit almost everyone’s tastes and interests.

Organizer Marcie Down says that “It’s a chance to spread the word about what’s happening in our area.” She adds that there will be an opportunity for people to sign up for the Cache Creek Softball Association, now in its second year. Softball in various forms is being offered for anyone aged four and older, and while the league is based in Cache Creek, the teams are open to anyone in the area.

T-ball will be offered for younger players, while there will be slo-pitch for people aged 19 and older. Down says that play will start on May 1.

The cost for a display is $10 per table, which includes a table and chairs plus set-up. The money raised will go to the Cache Creek Activities Program. For more information about Spring Into Action, or to book a table, contact Down at (250) 457-6237, or at
