SPRING LAKE TWP. – An evening of family fun will help local students and their planned project this summer.

The Dive In pirate-themed event includes activities and the movie “Hook” beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, April 20, at the Spring Lake Community Fitness and Aquatic Center. The cost to participate is $5 a person and $20 per family.

Participants don’t need to be members of the facility to attend the event. Food will also be available for purchase.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the disaster relief trip that about 50 students and staff will take this summer. The group will help people who have been affected by natural disasters.

The Interact Club selected the trip as a way to support fellow Interact members going on the trip and the groups’ overall efforts, said Emily Nieboer, an advisor for the high school club.

A service club, Interact falls under the Spring Lake Rotary Club.

While more students are signed up for the club, Nieboer said there’s a core of 40-50 students who are actively involved.

The 1991 film “Hook,” featuring Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman, will be shown in the competitive pool.

Guests 13 years old and younger must be accompanied by individuals 18 and older. Attendees are advised to bring their own towels.

“I hope they have fun in the pool and raise money for a good cause,” Nieboer said.

Residents interested in donating to the relief trip can also make donations by mailing checks to Spring Lake High School and write “relief trip” in the memo line.
