What's Up in Stallion Springs?
June 5, 2021
The Stallion Springs CSD held its annual Color Run on May 22. There were 80 runners that did the just over 3-mile run and got covered with powdered colored chalk. Tyler Simpson was first to complete the course in 21 minutes followed by Seth Liebman and Dalton Bellah. The first woman to complete the course was Maria Sanchez in 32 minutes. The first family across the line was the Camp, Buesler team. Some runners took as long as two hours to run or walk the course.
Home Owners Scholarships
The Stallion Springs Home Owners Association gave out $5,000 in scholarships to six qualified high school graduates from our community on Sunday, May 23.
Elizabeth Partridge $1,000; Ella Moomey $1,000; Samantha Downs $1,000; Cora Sweeney $1,000; Michael Davis $500; Lauren Follis $500. Good luck graduates.
The awards were given out at Man-O-War park where the HOA recently donated bleachers to the new and upcoming baseball park in the amount of $3,800. The money for the bleachers came from sales of Stallion Springs hoodies and t-shirts over the past four years.
Congratulations to the recipients.
