Unlike last year, winter is still here. Despite the snow, events still happen. (Thank goodness.)
The annual Easter egg hunt will be Saturday, March 30, at the school at 10 a.m.. This is always a fun time for the children. The Easter Bunny always hides real eggs, and plastic eggs with prizes and candy in them. Plus, the Bunny always stays to visit with the children. Short of a blizzard, the "show" always goes on, so if you'd like to help the Bunny by donating decorated eggs or plastic eggs or help out, the Bunny would be ever so grateful. Deliver the decorated eggs to the grocery store on Friday, March 29, and the plastic eggs to Cheri or the store anytime before March 29. And don't forget to thank Cheri Van Laar for putting this together EVERY year. Cheri's number is 395-2363.
Our local churches -- Baptist, Presbyterian, Church of Christ and Jonah -- are sponsoring a community Easter breakfast again this year. It will be held on Easter morning from 8-9:30 a.m., at the school and it's free. Huckleberry pancakes, ham, fresh fruit, juice and coffee will be served. A song/mime will be performed at 8:30 and 9:00. What a nice way to start this holiday.
The Columbia River Readers Theater will hold a planning meeting on Wednesday, April 3, at 6:30 p.m. at the White Salmon Library. Roger Allen is the director. The main purpose of the group is to provide community service in cultural and theater arts, including teaching the art of reading aloud. Everyone is invited.
