TRINITY – The classrooms of Seven Springs Middle School will continue to maintain the most up-to-date educational technology as food lovers maintained their large appetites for the tenth annual Taste of Trinity May 18.

Dozens of food and non-food vendors were there to provide just a taste of the offerings from their menus, or just a bag of popcorn in order to entice potential customers to view their wares.

As the event drew to a close, event organizers were smiling – along with the visitors leaving with satisfied tummies.

Kari Sarakun, Seven Springs Language Arts instructor and parent, said the day equaled any previous year’s efforts.

“This event invites our community to come in and visit with vendors who have donated samples for visitors to try,” Sarakun said. “The money goes directly to buy technology for our classrooms. In years past, that has been in the range of $15,000 to $20,000.”

Sarakun said the tenth anniversary event turned out to be “a big deal.”

“We had a parent stop and say this was the best one yet and were very excited,” she said. “They said they would see us next year.”

She said the funds being received were “on a very, very positive path.”

“It is very nice the impact can be direct to the classrooms, teachers and students,” Sarakun said. “When they are holding those new pieces of technology next year, this is where the money came to pay for it.”
