On Saturday, April 23, 2011, WFFNA held its first Easter Egg Hunt at Burner Park. It was well attended by over 100 children and their accompanying parents and relatives. The children enjoyed frosting mini-cupcakes, coloring Easter Bunny Bags, and getting to meet with the Easter Bunny and pose in his special chair for pictures. The children had a great time as they scrambled around the park areas to find over 400 Easter eggs to turn in to receive special ‘treat bags’, including the magic yellow ‘prize’ eggs. Time and help ran short so the egg relay was not able to be held, but will be kept in mind for next year.
The WFFNA Activities Committee would like to express special appreciation to Mimi Kim of Coldwell-Banker Realty for the loan of the bunny suit and chair; and a special thank you to Marcus Wells of our Ironcrest community for his participation towards school credit. In addition to the $100 funds provided by the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA), $36 was collected in the donation jar at the event, and additional personal donations were provided from several board members.
In addition to the parents who helped with clean-up at the end, we want to send a big thank you to all the members of the WFFNA Activities Committee and volunteers who helped make this fun event possible for our children, including: Robert & Francine Gorman, Ted & Nancy Daus, Lisa Korpus, Amy Aufdemberge & Marc Sapoznik, and Loren & Sue Cook.
