Bouncy castle almost didn’t happen for Saltair Easter

The Saltair Easter event is a Saltair tradition and has been going on for 40 years.

Bouncy castle almost didn’t happen for Saltair Easter

Brianna Morrison, aged three, stopped by the home of Janet Evans (a Saltair Easter event volunteer) to make a donation for the Saltair Easter event to make sure there is a bouncy castle for all the children to enjoy at the upcoming Saltair Easter Celebration event.

The Saltair Easter event is a Saltair tradition and has been going on for 40 years. Many hard working volunteers step forward to make sure this event happens in Saltair. Kudos to them all.

This year the issue of no money for the bouncy castle started people coming forward with donations. Why is there no money for the bouncy castle? Last year the Saltair Community Society paid for the bouncy castle, but not this year. The Saltair Community Society has just received $10,000 from the Saltair Recreation budget (Saltair taxpayers funds) for recreation, art, culture and community programs but it appears they will not be covering the cost of the bouncy castle this year for the Saltair Easter event — community program.

Shame on the adults who are so busy spending the $10,000 funds from the Saltair taxpayers — Saltair Recreation budget — on who knows what that there are no funds for community programs like the Saltair Easter event bouncy castle.

Brianna and her brother are excited that there will now be a bouncy castle at the Saltair Easter Celebration. Thank you to all the hard working volunteers who make the Saltair Easter event a one of a kind event in the Saltair area.
