Wenatchee Valley College at Omak invites the community to the first ever Spring Fling on Friday, May 29, at 2 p.m. at the Omak Civic League Park. This event will feature WVC at Omak clubs, academic programs and community programs and will highlight exciting events happening on the Omak campus. Admissions, financial aid services, and other new student information will be available.

The WVC at Omak science department will present hands-on science experiments by current students. Ornithology, environmental science, anatomy and physiology, microbiology and chemistry classes will share their experiences with the public. The event also features rescued birds by Linda Lindsay and the Fourth Annual Solar Oven Cook-Off by the environmental science class. The Science Club will also sell hotdogs and soda pop.

The Spring Fling includes musical performances by The Ruby Scene at 4 p.m., featuring WVC at Omak alumni Denny Richardson, and The Outer Space Blues Band at 4:30 p.m. WVC at Omak alumni Cristina Del Rosario provides dynamic, soulful vocals as she fronts this tight ensemble, which also features a keyboard/vocalist, drum, bass and guitar. Del Rosario describes her band's jamming sound as "High energy blues, rocking blues, southern rock, soul and Motown groove." Don't miss this finale to the Spring Fling with perhaps the hottest new band around.

This event is free to the public and is sponsored by WVC at Omak Associated Student Body.
