Arlington trampolines help M’ville students

ARLINGTON – Some Marysville students had a little more bounce in their steps during winter break.

Marysville students enjoy playing dodge ball at the air park in Arlington.

ARLINGTON – Some Marysville students had a little more bounce in their steps during winter break.

The Marysville-Pilchuck Memorial Fund-raiser group, in conjunction with Absolute Air Park in Arlington, allowed Marysville students to play on the trampolines at a discount.

It was one of a number of activities set up by the M-P Memorial group to give students something positive to do over the break. Other activities included bowling, the YMCA and more.

“It’s neat the community pulled together for the kids,” said Noreen Moen, who brought four students to the air park.

One of the students goes to M-P High School, where the tragic shooting took place two months ago. The activities were set up specifically to help kids like that. Moen said the events are helping her daughter deal with the tragedy.

“It helps her to be with her friends,” Moen said.

Tim Salcedo, general manager at the air park, said the business was glad to help.

“Anything that AAP can do to help out the community we try and participate,” he said, adding they did the same thing soon after the tragedy.

Even though not that many kids came Dec. 29 Salcedo said it still felt good to help.

“The day went well, the turnout was great for the kids who came and jumped!” he said.

Jeni Westby was another mom who brought not only her own kids, but others, too. She was happy the event was set up.

“It helps the budget and gives them exercise,” Westby said.

Her daughter, McKenna, also went bowling at an event set up last week at Strawberry Lanes in Marysville.

“It’s kind of cool,” McKenna said. “It gives us something to do in the winter.”

For some, it was their first time at the air park. But for others, like 15-year-old Jake Mathern, the air park is a nice facility, and it’s a good idea to give kids something fun to do.

“I like the foam pit and dodge ball,” he said.
